RPI finished second in a competitive ECAC Hockey race but failed to receive an NCAA tournament bid after losing to Brown in a three-game ECAC quarterfinal series.

Haggerty scored 2 goals with 4 assists and was +5 with 4 penalty minutes in 14 playoff games. The Blackhawks obtained Haggerty from the Rangers in a trade for goalie Antti Raanta in June 2015. 



Talent Analysis

Haggerty showed scoring ability in both his final season of college hockey and as a rookie at the AHL level in 2014-15. He has an accurate shot and a very quick release. Not overly impressive in terms of his technical skills or skating ability, Haggerty relies on sound instincts and plays a smart game.


Haggerty is in his first season with the Chicago organization after being acquired by the Blackhawks from the Rangers in exchange for goalie Antti Raanta in June 2015. In the third year of his entry-level contract, he will start the season with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs. Haggerty's skill set suggests some value as a potential third or fourth line forward, with the potential to chip in offensively.

After going to the Stanley Cup finals last spring, the Rangers have been trying to tweak the NHL team to put it over the top, rather than making wholesale changes within the organization.

The New York Rangers recent long run through the 2014 postseason took many surprise. A solid team, well coached to highlight its strengths, New York's playoff success was a group effort. The team's top marquee player, Rick Nash, was not very effective during the playoffs, however, the team's speed and signature defense caused opponents quite a bit of trouble.
