    Welcome Gopher Brady Skjei

    University of Minnesota d-man and first-round pick Brady Skjei has passed on returning for his senior season to join the New York Rangersí AHL affiliate in Hartford, according to Letís Play Hockey.

    Skjei, 21, was the 28th overall pick at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and has spent the last three seasons in Minnesota. A former U.S. National Development Team member, Skjei is a big-bodied rearguard (6-foot-3, 206 pounds) that the Rangers were hoping would turn pro after the Gophersí season ended last week with a NCAA regional semifinal defeat to Minnesota-Duluth.

    He has 40 points, that's great, this may be a star in the making on D. If not for those 2 super rookies, he would have a chance.
