The newest Ranger is undrafted free agent Kyle Jean. A 22-year old 6-4 forward with some adept hands and skating. He played his first two years of college for Lake Superior State. In his sophomore campaign, Jean posted 12 goals and 12 assists over 39 contests for the Lakers. A notable improvement from the one goal he tallied in his freshman year.

"The (pro) game is different from college hockey because college hockey is more run-and-gun," the newest Blueshirt said. "Here you have to make more smart plays, and I like that. My approach has been to come in and be a big sponge and learn as much as I can. Other than that I am just taking it day by day."

He impressed during rookie camp by scoring four goals. Jean also has some nice individual skills as evidenced here on a game-winning shootout versus Western. For a more live speed look, here you go:
