Observations

March 2019 – The Riverhawks starter continues his resurgence as one of the NCAA’s top goaltenders. Since kicking off his junior season at UMass-Lowell, Wall has been selected as Hockey East’s Player of the Week, and Defensive Player of the Week on several occasions. Despite his success in his third college season, it’s highly unlikely that Wall chooses to go pro next fall, and just as unlikely that the Rangers would have any interest in him making the early exit. If he continues at this level of play though, it’s quite likely that Wall will be greeted by an NHL contract upon graduation, and begin life as a pro in the AHL in the fall of 2021. The way that the current Rangers goaltending depth looks, there’s no reason to rule out anything for the Ontario native. Brayden Olafson

September 2018 – The name says it all, doesn’t it? Wall was a sixth-round selection of the Rangers in 2016, who have continued their trend of mass selecting goaltenders in search of the heir to King Henrik’s throne. In the year prior to Wall being drafted, he backstopped an outstanding Leamington Flyers to a Conference Final loss in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League. From the GOJHL, Wall was recruited to play for the U-Mass Lowell River Hawks where he’s now entering his junior year. The extended timeline has been a helpful tool in the Rangers allowing the goaltender to develop. It’s highly unlikely that Wall receives a contract prior to his Senior year, at which point he would be eligible to hold out and become an unrestricted free agent. At this point, his value doesn’t seem high enough to warrant such a move. Brayden Olafson
