Earlier this summer the Rangers announced that Jed Ortmeyer was rejoining the organization and taking on a role as Director of Player Development.
The Rangers say that in his role, Ortmeyer will work with Adam Graves to oversee "development of Rangers prospects, both on and off the ice" and that he will work with players at all different stages in the organization.
Ortmeyer says that this is a "dream job" for him and that he looks forward to helping the Rangers young players and prospects in the way that Adam Graves and former teammates Mark Messier and Brian Leetch helped him. (NYR)
Chris Drury, who held the position of Director of Player Development before being promoted to Assistant GM, says that Ortmeyere will be a "great example" for the young members of the Rangers organization. (NYR)
