Jeff Gorton spoke to Jim Cerny. Gorton was at Lake Placid looking at the Rangers prospects

"JT is looking at a bigger role this year," Gorton said of the Rangers top pick from the 2011 NHL Draft. "And hopefully he continues to bring that two-way game, adds some offense to that group--which we saw the first couple of days in Lake Placid---and just continues to get better."

Skjei, the Rangers first round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, is one of eleven defensemen remaining at Team USA's evaluation camp. He is set to enter his Freshman year at The University of Minnesota.

"In Brady's case this is his first run at it, obviously just coming out of the draft," explained Gorton. "For him to make that team would be quite a story. He's played really well, and his skating has been really good."

Fogarty might be the least heralded of the three Rangers prospects vying for a spot on Team USA's roster simply because, unlike Miller and Skjei, he was not a first-round selection. Instead Fogarty, a smart and skilled forward, was chosen in the third round of the 2011 draft by the Blueshirts.
