78 -- Luke Johnson -- C
72 -- Blake Heinrich -- D
49 -- Michael Downing -- D
51 -- Keaton Thompson -- D
83 -- Zach Sanford -- LW

All are NCAA-bound. Downing is going to Ann Arbor. Johnson and Thompson are going to NoDak. Heinrich I believe is going to Duluth and Sanford is uncommitted.

Barring any trades, the Rangers may have five picks between the 50-80 range (based off the current standings and the chance they dont make the CF)

I wouldnt be surprised if they draft at least two of these kids. Johnson has Kreider's skill set and the height but not the muscle. Downing might be gone by the 50s but he's a lot like McDonagh/Staal in that he can skate and shut guys down.

Button, as usual with his CHL bias -- has only one in his top-75 (Thompson at 38)
