August 2022 — Another Michigan native, like 2022 fourth round pick Noah Laba, Mancini was drafted in the fifth round by the New York Rangers in the 2022 NHL draft as an “overage” player.  Mancini will be playing for the University of Nebraska Omaha Mavericks during the 2022-2023 campaign, after spending the past few seasons in two countries, in Sweden’s J18 and J20 leagues, as well as the USHL and the NCAA.  He certainly is a well-traveled player.  In 2021-2022, Mancini posted five assists in 38 games played for the Mavericks.  Mancini is property of the Rangers until the summer of 2025. He will need to develop well over these next few seasons in order to work his way up a crowded depth chart in New York.  Brendan Ferry
