Monday morning the Rangers announced they had agreed to terms with 2010 fourth round draft pick Andrew Yogan on his first professional contract.
The 20 year-old Yogan, the first player born and raised in the state of Florida to be drafted by an NHL team, is coming off a career season with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL. Yogan netted a career-best 41 goals, while totaling a career-high 78 points, in 66 games. He also racked up 96 penalty minutes.
Yogan, who led Peterborough in both goals and assists, ranked sixth in the OHL in goal scoring and tied for 15th in points this season. IN 240 career games in major junior, Yogan recorded 96 goals, 186 points and 287 penalty minutes.
Last year Yogan completed his season by playing in two games on an amateur tryout with the Connecticut Whale of AHL, notching a pair of goals in his pro debut and finishing with three points in two games. He has already played three games with the Whale this season on another amateur tryout, and he is scoreless.
