Scored 41 goals in the WHL with the Blades this season, originally drafted by Toronto. The Rangers probably saw him scouting McColgan

Good pickup. Was surprised he didn't get a contract from the Leafs.

Here is some scouting by leafs fans. I guess this is a Wolfwhale signing?

Definitely a project. He has a good frame, but he was still pretty lanky from what I remember earlier this year in the couple of Blades games I watched. Still, he fits the mold of a Rangers player. Skates well, good defensively, works his tail off on and off the ice, but isn't overly skilled.

Could be a solid energy line player who can kill penalties if everything works out.

I would be pretty surprised if this was a signing for the big club.

A few people mentioned that his skating ability isn't all that good in that thread from the Leafs board.

Nicholls contract with NYR is standard three-year entry level deal, listed with annual cap hit of $925K. Gets SB of $92.5K in each of 3 yrs.
https://twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie/s...10386604072961

SPC begins 2013-14. Nicholls can sign an AHL deal to play in the AHL when his junior year is over. Teams are allowed to sign players after March 1 to have the SPC begin the following season.

He was 20 already in September so he counts towards the 50 contract limit regardless. I don't believe he can go to the AHL until after his junior season is over, though.

I suppose he'll sign a ATO with Connecticut after Saskatoon's season is done.
