RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Boo Nieves.
The Rangers selected Cristoval "Boo" Nieves with their second-round pick in the 2012 draft after finishing fourth in team scoring (29 points in 40 games played) during his freshmen season with the Michigan Wolverines, just behind Jetsí breakout defenseman Jacob Trouba.Unfortunately, Nieves had a bit of a sophomore slump in 2013-14, posting 22 points (three goals) in 34 games. Keep in mind, he spent most of the season transitioning from wing to center, so it will be interesting to see how he bounces back in his junior year.
Nieves, most commonly referred to as "Boo", has a ton of excitement building around his name. It's fair to say the Rangers' second round pick of the 2012 NHL Entry draft is one of their most prized prospects. After collecting eight goals and 21 assists in 40 games as a freshmen with the Michigan Wolverines, it's no surprise the 19-year-old center was invited to Team USA's World Junior camp, much-less the Rangers prospect camp this off season. While there's still a lot of excitement ahead of Nieves he's not going to be of any help to annual re-drafters this season. Keeper league owners should commence salivation.
The Rangers' second-round pick in the 2012 entry draft has decided to play his 2012-13 season the University of Michigan. The 18-year-old most likely won't see the NHL for a few years, but he's a talented player that dynasty owners would do well to keep an eye on.
