Leslie Treff at Hockey's Future takes a look at the 2009-2010 Rangers junior prospects including Ryan Bourque and Tomas Kundratek...
Ryan Bourque, C, Quebec Remparts
Acquired: Third Round (80th overall), 2009 NHL Entry Draft
One of the most exciting offensive playmakers the Rangers have drafted in the last five years, Bourque decided to forego college and join the Remparts for the 2009-10 season. Despite missing several weeks in the spring with both a head injury and a neck injury, Bourque finished the season 10th overall in QMJHL rookie scoring (43 points in 44 games) and sixth in scoring on the Remparts. Bourque is a highly talented playmaker who is learning the two-way game. Despite the late-season injuries, after his return from winning gold as a member of the US U-20 WJCs team, Bourque's confidence improved. This led to a more than a goal-a-game pace for the last two months of the regular season and into the playoffs. Expect Bourque to return for at least one more season to the Remparts.
...i say this all the time, despite the bad outcome to the season, Rangers fans have to be excited for the future of this franchise. For once they have REAL prospects. No Brendls and Lundmarks.
