Philippe Furrer was selected by the New York Rangers in the sixth round with the 179th overall selection. A native of Swizterland, Furrer played 27 games with SC Bern of the Swiss Elite League this past season, notching one assist and accumulating two penalty minutes. He's a two-way defenseman who plays aggressive and is a tough competitor. He skates well and likes to keep his game simple. He's one of those guys who plays it safe and doesn't make a lot of mistakes on the ice. Although Switzerland has not produced many NHL players in the past, things are looking up for that country. A couple of Swiss players have been drafted in the past few years, Furrer among them. He'll take some time to develop. Could be a top six defenseman some day.
