Fantasy Summary

Ragnarsson has an excellent floor as a defensive prospect. He’ll likely never become a point producing defender in the NHL, but it would be quite conceivable for him to become a minute-munching Dan Girardi type of defender.

Observations

December 2018 – The sizable Rangers’ prospect has a mountain to climb after being named to Sweden’s preliminary roster for the 2019 World Junior Championship in Vancouver. The Swede’s will ice one of the most formidable blulines at the tournament, regardless of the Almtuna defender’s participation. He is one of eight defensemen named to the preliminary roster, five of which are former first round picks. Despite his slim chance at cracking the final roster, the nomination is an outstanding recognition for the third-round pick, and a testament to the Ranger’s competence in the 2018 draft. Despite a disappointing statistical start to his D+1 campaign, Ragnarsson should be ready to step into the top Swedish league (SHL), or AHL relatively soon. Brayden Olafson

June 2018 – The third defenseman selected by the Rangers in the 2018 NHL entry draft, Ragnarsson checks the highly defensive and physical boxes that the two earlier selected defenders do not. His offensive upside isn’t impressive, however at 70th overall, his solid skating ability and work ethic make him a safe pick for the Rangers. Brayden Olafson
