New York Rangers select LW Brennan Othmann with the 16th pick in the NHL Draft

The New York Rangers continued their future growth by selecting LW Brennan Othmann in the first round of the NHL Draft.

The New York Rangers chose a left-wing with their first-round pick (16th overall) in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft on Friday night.

Othmann loves nothing more than to collect the puck on the breakout, lead the charge into the offensive zone, and turn the corner on opposing defenders. He always attacks at full speed, playing a high-pace style, and pressuring with that same level of intensity. He pressures on the forecheck, plays the body, and takes good routes to cut off the opposition’s attempts at a breakout. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

While playing for the Flint Firebirds of the OHL, Othmann appeared in 55 games, netting 17 goals with 33 points.
