Raaymakers Gets NHL Look With Rangers
Chatham’s Joseph Raaymakers will get his chance to skate with an NHL organization this weekend as the goaltender will represent the New York Rangers at the annual NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan.
Hosted by the Detroit Red Wings, the annual tournament will run from September 16-20.
Raaymakers went undrafted last season, slipping in the Central Scouting rankings throughout the season. He posted a 3.61 GAA and .891 save percentage, along with a 13-10-3-1 record last season with the OHL’s Soo Greyhounds.
He’ll have a familiar task at the NHL tournament, trying to steal the net from goaltender Brandon Halverson, who has been the starter for the OHL’s Greyhounds the past two seasons.
