The Rangers announced Monday they have signed Vancouver Giants (WHL) forward Ty Ronning to a three-year, entry- level contract.
Ronning, 20, was a seventh-round pick of the Rangers in 2016. He has 55 goals for the Giants this season, breaking the club record of 48 set by Evander Kane in 2008-09.
The 5-9, 172-pound Ronning is the son of former NHL player Cliff Ronning, a 5-8 forward who played for seven teams — most notably the St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks — over an 18-season career. Cliff Ronning scored 306 goals and 869 points in his career, which ended with the Islanders in 2004.
