***MEDICINE HAT DRAFTS TOMAS KUNDRATEK***
The Medicine Hat Tiger have selected 2008 3rd round pick (and Rangers draftee) Tomas Kundratek with the 15th overall pick in today’s CHL draft. Evgeny Gravchev has yet to be selected.
Martin Straka will not be returning to the Rangers next season. According to reports from the Czech Republic, the veteran forward has signed on with Plzen in the Czech Elite League to be their player/manager. The 35 year old played 224 regular season games with the Rangers scoring 65 goals and registering 122 assists.
2008 third round pick Evgeny Gravchev says he was surprised he didn’t get picked in the first round, and wants to be like Evgeni Malkin. Gravchev is attending the Rangers’ prospect camp currently, and is set to play in Canadian Juniors this Winter (import draft is today).
