Potential power forward with some offensive upside.

July 2022 – Gettinger completed his fourth season with AHL Hartford this past season, where he registered 10 goals and 15 assists in 45 games played, while serving his first season as Alternate Captain for the Wolf Pack. Over the past four seasons, he has also suited up in a total of 16 games with the Rangers. The big-bodied forward, despite the fact that his AHL point-per-game numbers have been on the uptick year-over-year (19 points in only 23 games played during the 2020-2021 season as the outlier), does not appear to be anything more than a short-term injury fill in at the NHL level. The 24-year-old Gettinger enters this offseason as an RFA and it is unclear what his future holds with the Rangers organization.  Brendan Ferry

 

March 2020 – The former Soo Greyhound remains the Rangers best left-wing prospect outside the NHL, although, considering his competition that isn’t saying a whole lot. The teams’ depth past their NHL roster on the left flank remains extremely shallow, and Gettinger has been consistent enough to keep his momentum towards the NHL rolling. The 21-year-old offered the Rangers some relief in November, albeit, it minimal capacity. In under 20 minutes of ice time through two contests, Gettinger managed a secondary assist on a quality play off of an offensive zone draw. His contributions for the Hartford Wolfpack have been satisfactory and he will likely arrive in the NHL on a full time basis sometime in the next two-years. Brayden Olafson

 

February 2019 – Gettinger has been off to a very good rookie campaign with the Rangers affiliate in Hartford. The Wolfpack have provided him with an opportunity to flourish early which has paid off in his production. At around a half a point per game mark in his first stint in the AHL, Gettinger’s NHL certainty score has undergone a bit of a boost, not to mention the four-game audition that he received with the Rangers towards the end of 2018. Down the line, this former Soo Greyhound is certainty looking like he could morph into a core piece of the Rangers depth. Brayden Olafson

 

November 2018 – The Rangers’ 20-year-old top-ranked prospect left-winger has been recalled by the NHL club. In his rookie campaign with the Hartford Wolfpack, Gettinger has produced consistently, tallying seven goals in his first twenty games with the club. He’s expected to be inserted into the lineup as a depth/role player which suits his hard-nosed style of play. He shouldn’t be expected to produce much offense in what will likely be a short-term assignment, but the confidence that the organization is showing in him bodes well for his future with the team. Brayden Olafson

 

September 2018 – Gettinger has joined the Ranger’s for another fall training camp in which he’s exhibited his typical power-forward role with a moderate amounts of offensive contribution. He gets involved in the play consistently and doesn’t make any glaring mistakes, which bodes well for his potential of eventually cracking an NHL roster. While his style of play remains somewhat dull, Gettinger should follow close behind the Ranger’s current wave youth infusion in a support role. Brayden Olafson

 

August 2017 – Gettinger is coming off his 3rd OHL season where he posted career bests with 31 goals and 23 assists in 62 regular season games, a 15 point improvement over 2015-16.  This summer he skated in the Rangers development camp and was also one of approximately 40 US born players invited to the 2017 World Junior Showcase in Plymouth, MI.  Gettinger is aiming for an invite to the US U20 selection camp in December 2017 and a strong start to the season in Sault Ste. Marie will definitely help.  Expect another season of growth from the young power forward. Geoff Kent
