March 2020 – The small speedy forward continues to grind in the Rangers farm system as a 22-year-old. The former seventh-round pick has struggled to make any significant progress in terms of his development since going pro in the fall of 2018. In order to play an effective game in the style that he is molded for, Ronning has primarily been a mainstay in the Maine Mariners top-6. Playing nearly full time in the ECHL at 22 makes him a long shot for the NHL, but fortunately, as a seventh-round draft-pick, he’s still playing with house money. With some minor shuffling in the Rangers’ system Ronning could find himself in a more effective position with Hartford next year, and in turn a better shot of reviving his career. For now, he remains a long shot with some upside. Brayden Olafson
March 2019 – After leaving the CHL to go pro, Ronning was met with the harsh reality of the Ranger’s competitive farm system. After a disappointing eight-game audition with the Hartford Wolfpack in the fall of 2018, Ronning was demoted to the more appropriate Maine Mariners of the ECHL. Ronning earned back some confidence with the Mariners though until mid-February when he was recalled to the Wolfpack where he’s provided immediate support. By all accounts, his mediocre stat line is not reflective of the skill he’s put on display when given the opportunity. Another year in the minor league system should paint a clearer picture of Ronning’s potential that remains relatively positive. Brayden Olafosn
Feb 2018 – Ronning, a promising late round 2016 draft pick of the New York Rangers, is known for bringing game breaking speed and offensive instincts to the ice. Since his NHL draft year Ronning has elevated his game immensely with a solid stint in the AHL at the end of the 2017 season where he amassed 5 points in 12 games. Returning to the Vancouver Giants of the WHL for his final junior season in 2017-18 Ronning has posted 73 points (53 goals, 20 assists) through 58 games. Ty Ronning is the son of former NHL veteran Cliff Ronning, also a 7th round NHL draft selection, who went onto skate in 1,137 regular season NHL games and amassed 869 points. Geoff Kent
