He scored 7 goals with 15 assists and had 14 penalty minutes. The Hornets advanced to the Minnesota State Tournament after capturing the Section 2AA championship with a 6-3 win over Burnsville in the final. Nanne scored 2 goals with 5 assists in three sectional playoff games. Edina played two games at the state tournament — a 3-2 loss to Benilde-St. Margaret’s and a 3-2 loss to Duluth East in the consolation tournament.

2012-13: Nanne made his USHL debut following the high school season — joining cousin Vinni Lettieri for two games with the Lincoln Stars in March — and was the fourth-leading scorer for Minnesota state champion Edina in his junior season. Nanne had no points nor penalties while skating with the Stars. In 31 games for Edina he scored 10 goals with 13 assists and 10 penalty minutes. Nanne had 3 assists in three Section 2AA playoff games, with Edina once again beating Burnsville (3-2) in the final. He had 1 goal in three games at the state tournament as the Hornets defeated Lakeville North and Duluth East before topping Hill-Murray, 4-2, in the championship game. Nanne attended USA Hockey’s Select 17 Development Camp in July — scoring 1 goal in six games for the Red squad.

 2013-14: Nanne played for Team Southwest in the Upper Midwest Elite High School Hockey League in the Fall before returning to Edina for his senior season and finished the year with the USHL’s Sioux Falls Stampede. Joining the Stampede in March and skating alongside his older brother Lou Nanne, he played in seven games, including three playoff contests, and was minus-5 with 2 assists and 4 penalty minutes. In 23 games for Team Southwest he scored 2 goals with 9 assists and 22 penalty minutes. Edina captured its second straight Minnesota AA championship and Nanne scored 13 goals with 26 assist and 52 penalty minutes in 32 games. After defeating Bloomington Jefferson in the Section 2AA championship game the Hornets rolled through Stillwater, Eagan, and Lakeville North in the state tournament. Nanne scored 4 goals with 4 assists and 7 penalty minutes in the three state tournament games. In January he committed to playing college hockey at Ohio State in 2015-16. Nanne was ranked 118th in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by the Rangers in the fifth round (142nd overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

2014-15: Tyler Nanne skated in the USHL — playing 14 games with the Sioux Falls Stampede before a November trade to the first-year Madison Capitols. In 43 games between the two teams he scored 8 goals with 8 assists and was -15 with 46 penalty minutes. Madison finished seventh in the Eastern Conference, missing the USHL playoffs.

2015-16: Nanne attended Ohio State University as a freshman but did not play in any games while dealing with injury issues.

Talent Analysis

Nanne is an outstanding skater who is undersized, but plays a big game. Still learning how to defend, Nanne thinks offense first, which sometimes causes turnovers, allowing opponents to blow right by him.


Nanne was to begin his college hockey career at Ohio State University in 2015-16 but was unable to take the ice, receiving a medical redshirt. He has four years of NCAA eligibility with the Buckeyes and more should be known about his NHL potential when he returns to the ice in 2016-17.

The New York Rangers have had a regular, steady graduation of excellent prospects to the NHL over the last five to seven years, which has accounted in part for the competitiveness of the team. When combined with free-agent pickups who are in or just past their prime, the prospects have helped make the team a Stanley Cup contender for the last several years. The goal of every organization is to win a Cup, and every player on the team has a window of opportunity to do so. Certainly, star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is within his window, and the Rangers have surrounded him with the players to win either this season or in the next two or three. Read more»

The New York Rangers have nine junior prospects in their system in 2014-15. For the past few years, the Rangers traded many of their picks, and in the process depleted their junior prospect pool. But with the selection of seven prospects in 2014 NHL Draft, New York has restocked the system.
