Rangers Prospect Update: Dominic Moore

By Jon Philpot

Dominic Moore, the high-scoring, Thornhill, Ontario native is looking like a very intriguing draft pick for the New York Rangers. Moore was the 107th captain in the history of the Harvard ice hockey program and led all players on his team with 51 points (24 g 27 a). Throughout his 128 game tenure with Harvard, Moore amounted 64 goals and 82 assists for a total of 146 points. Moore was selected this year as the annual winner of the John Tudor Cup — the top player on the Harvard club. He also led his team to the ECAC finals this year against Cornell, to whom they eventually lost.

Moore is a very fast and offensively aware forward who has never been lax on his play in the defensive end. He is seen as a two-way forward with the capability to put up points. He is even seen by some as a taller, larger Mike York. Now that York has been traded, the Rangers have been missing a leadership role and a scoring left winger. Moore may be the solution, as he played mostly center in Harvard but has played the left side on occasion.

This year was Moore’s final year with Harvard and he now must be signed by New York within one year. Moore is a must to be signed, as the team is severely hurting for any form of scoring and back checking to come along on the left side. Moore also is a vital cog to the seemingly missing leadership that is abundant throughout the club. Moore is someone who can top out as a two-way second line winger when all is said and done and if he develops properly.

Moore is one of the Rangers top prospects, and if he can learn to play left wing in the NHL, he can become one important piece in eventually contending for Lord Stanley’s Cup.
