2009-10: Fogarty scored 21 goals with 19 assists and was +16 as a junior for Minnesota’s Edina High School. The Hornets defeated rival Minnetonka, 4-2, to capture the state AA championship. Fogarty was selected for the Advanced 17 Festival in April and scored 2 goals with 2 assists in three games.

2010-11: Fogarty made his USHL debut, completed his high school career, and participated in the pre-season Upper Midwest League. In six games with the Chicago Steel he scored 2 goals and was -10 with 2 PMs. Fogarty scored 26 goals with 25 assists and was +14 with 12 PMs as a senior at Edina. The Hornets advanced to the state AA tournament semifinals, falling to Duluth East, 2-1, in a classic game (Fogarty scored Edina’s goal). He played 21 games for Team Southwest in the pre-season Upper Midwest Elite League and scored 12 goals with 9 assists and 14 PMs. He was selected to play for Minnesota Red in the 2010 Bauer NIT and scored three goals in three games. Fogarty committed to playing college hockey at Notre Dame in 2012-13.

2011-12: Fogarty skated for the BCHL and RBC Cup (Canada Junior A) champion Penticton Vees. He scored 22 goals with 48 assists and had 32 penalty minutes in 60 games as the Vees dominated the BCHL. In 15 playoff games he scored 4 goals with 4 assists and had 12 penalty minutes. Fogarty scored 1 goal with 2 assists and had 4 penalty minutes in six games at the RBC Cup, including a goal in the championship game against the Woodstock Slammers.

2012-13: Fogarty played in 41 games for Notre Dame as a freshman. Centering the fourth line, he scored 5 goals with 5 assists and was +1 with 4 penalty minutes. The Fighting Irish captured the final CCHA playoff title after finishing second to Miami in the regular season. Notre Dame lost to St. Cloud State, 5-1, in the NCAA Midwest Regional to finish 25-13-3.

2013-14: Fogarty skated in 33 of 40 games for Notre Dame in his sophomore season. He scored 3 goals with 8 assists and was +1 with 10 penalty minutes. The Fighting Irish finished seventh in their first season in Hockey East but earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament after upsetting Boston College in the first round of the conference tournament. Notre Dame lost to St. Cloud State, 4-3, in overtime in the NCAA West regional semifinals.

2014-15: Fogarty had career highs in goals (nine) and assists (12) in his junior season at Notre Dame. He finished +8 with 6 penalty minutes, scoring three of his nine goals on the power play, in 39 games for the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame finished fifth in Hockey East in the regular season and took fourth-place Massachusetts-Lowell to three games in the Hockey East quarterfinals; falling 6-4 in the decisive third game and ending the year with a record of 18-19-5.

2015-16: Fogarty signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Rangers in March 2016 following his senior season at the University of Notre Dame — making his pro debut with the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack in April. He had an assist and was +1 in his first two AHL games. Fogarty finished tied with fellow senior Sam Herr for fourth on the Fighting Irish with 10 goals and was +7 with 13 assists and 26 penalty minutes in 37 games for Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish finished third in Hockey East behind Boston College and Providence — earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament despite being swept by Northeastern in the Hockey East quarterfinals. Notre Dame lost to Michigan, 3-2 in overtime, in the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals.

Talent Analysis

Fogarty has good offensive skills and a big body, which he uses well along the boards and in front of the net. A decent skater, he will need to improve his stride to move to the next level, but he is solid two-way forward, with decent hands.

Future

Fogarty made his pro debut in April 2016 with the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack following his four-year college career at the University of Notre Dame. A team captain in each of his final two seasons with the Fighting Irish, Fogarty projects as a solid two-way center man who can provide some offensive support while playing a responsible game in all three zones of the ice. He will likely spend the bulk of the 2016-17 season at the AHL level making the adjustment from college to pro hockey.

For many years, high-end prospects in the New York Rangers organization had little hope of ever playing on Broadway. The skill positions were the domain of big-ticket free-agent signees or declining veterans who came by trade. Almost ten years ago, that strategy changed, and as a result the majority of the Rangers roster is now home-grown. Continuing in that current trend, it is likely that two more prospects will be on the team when the season opens. Read more»

The summer of 2015 has seen big changes in the New York Rangers’ front office. After 15 years as president and general manager of the team, Glen Sather stepped down as GM on July 1. The club appointed former assistant GM Jeff Gorton to succeed him, and although Sather has retained his title as president, he will be less involved with day-to-day decisions this season and will not be pulling the trigger on trades.
