History

2009-10: Troy Donnay played for the Belle Tire midget major team in Michigan. He scored 3 goals with 18 assists and had 91 penalty minutes in 65 games. He was selected by London in the fourth round (79th overall) of the 2010 OHL Priority Draft.

2010-11: Donnay appeared in 25 games in his first season with the London Knights. He had 1 assist and was -2 with 12 penalty minutes. London reached the playoffs after finishing fifth in the Midwest Division. The Knights took eventual OHL champion Owen Sound to six games in a first round playoff series but Donnay did not see any action.

2011-12: Donnay played 27 games for London in his second OHL season — scoring his first goal while playing forward — before being obtained by Erie in a January trade. In 50 games between the two teams Donnay scored 1 goal with 7 assists and was -24 with 44 penalty minutes. The Otters missed the playoffs; finishing with the OHL's worst record. Donnay was ranked 122nd amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings but was not selected in the 2012 NHL Draft.

2012-13: Donnay was an assistant captain and logged major minutes for Erie in his third OHL season. He scored 1 goal with 7 assists and was -39 with 48 penalty minutes in 68 games. The Otters showed improvement, finishing 21 points better than in 2011-12, but once again missed the playoffs after finishing fifth in the Midwest Division. Donnay signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Rangers in July of 2013.

The New York Rangers currently have only four prospects playing major junior hockey. This is the lowest number of prospects assigned to the CHL in recent memory and reflects both a switch in drafting tendencies, as well as the fact the Rangers had a combined nine draft picks in 2012 and 2013.

It seems like a distant memory now, but just six or seven years ago, the New York Rangers had few homegrown players on their NHL roster. Big name free agents were the norm for this original six team, with few of the team's prospects ever appearing in more than one or two games on Broadway.
