History

2006-07: Andrew Yogan was drafted by the Windsor Spitfires in the fifth round of the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.

2007-08: In his OHL rookie season, Yogan scored five goals and added two assists for seven points in 50 games for the Windsor Spitfires.  He played in five playoff games for the Spitfires, but recorded no points and six penalty minutes in five games.

2008-09: Yogan began the season with the Spitfires, appearing 16 games for that club.  Yogan netted five goals and added three assists for eight points in those games.  He was traded from the Spitfires to the Erie Otters in a deal that brought Brandon Maxwell to the Spitfires.  Yogan played in 35 games for the Otters, netting 17 goals and picking up 17 assists to go along with a +11 rating and 32 penalty minutes.

2009-10: In 63 games for the Erie Otters, Yogan scored 25 goals and added 30 assists for 55 points while picking up 97 penalty minutes.  Yogan played for Team Cherry at the 2010 CHL Top Prospects Game, where he made it onto the score sheet from a fight with Team Orr’s Matt MacKenzie.

2010-11: Yogan saw his first pro action, posting three points in two games with the Rangers’ AHL affiliate Connecticut, after missing most of the season due to shoulder surgery over the summer. Yogan scored twice in his AHL debut in April, a 4-3 loss to Bridgeport and had an assist in a season-ending 6-3 loss to Norfolk but did not play in the AHL playoffs. Yogan did not re-join his OHL team Erie until February after an extensive rehab period. In ten regular season games with the Otters he scored 3 goals with 1 assist and was +1 with 6 PMs. He skated in 3 of 7 playoff games for the Otters and had 2 assists and finished -1.

2011-12: Yogan joined the AHL’s Connecticut Whale at the end of the year for the second straight season after playing an overage season with Peterborough. He was scoreless and minus-one with 15 penalty minutes in four AHL games and did not play in any playoff games. Yogan provided both scoring and physical play for an inexperienced Peterborough team. He was the Petes’ leading scorer with 41 goals and 37 assists in 66 games and tied for second on the team with 96 penalty minutes. His plus-eight plus/minus was the top mark on a team that missed the OHL playoffs and finished under .500.

2012-13: Yogan split his first pro season between Rangers AHL affiliate Connecticut and the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors. He opened the season with Connecticut, scoring 1 goal and seeing limited ice time in 11 games before being loaned to Greenville. He returned to the Whale in January: scoring 6 goals with 12 assists in the final 32 games. He finished the year with 7 goals and 12 assists in 43 AHL games and was +8 with 35 penalty minutes. Connecticut missed the AHL playoffs by two points despite finishing second in the Northeast Division. Sent to Greenville at the end of November, he scored 9 goals with 3 assists in 15 games with the Road Warriors and was +5 with 14 penalty minutes before returning to Connecticut.

 

Talent Analysis

Yogan has a big frame and skates well. He can take face-offs and goes to the net well, along with decent vision. Yogan also can drop the gloves, although that is not expected to be his strong point at the next level.

The New York Rangers have become one of the NHL teams that rely most on good player development. As the result of a rebuild that lasted at least half of the last decade, close to half of the players on the 2011-12 roster had either been drafted or signed as free agents out of junior hockey.

Brady Skjei - New York Rangers

After several years with a very strong group of prospects, the New York Rangers have graduated a lot of home-grown talent to the NHL team. The system remains strong defensively, but the only potential star in the system is winger Chris Kreider. Organizational depth in goaltending remains a weakness, with only Jason Missiaen and Scott Stajcer among the netminding prospects.
