He’s here and he’s beautiful.
The Rangers have, finally, landed their man! Kaapo Kakko, the 6’2″ product from Finland, is officially a Blueshirt.
Ever since the NHL Draft lottery on April 9th, we’ve been patiently waiting to see who the Devils would take with the #1 overall pick tonight. Congrats to Marc and his Devs with Jack Hughes, but I know Dylan and I are thrilled with Kakko.
Still plenty of work to be done for GM / wizard Jeff Gorton – maybe even tonight (?) – but this was a very exciting day for Rangers Town. The trajectory of this team has been fun to watch and it feels rewarding to see the rebuild take another massive step.
