Rangers sign goalie prospect Tyler Wall

The Rangers have announced that they have signed 2016 sixth round pick Tyler Wall.

Wall, 22, played for seasons for UMass Lowell and had a record of 58-34-10, with a 2.28 GAA and .918 save percentage.

From the Rangers release:

  • “He was named to the Hockey East Third All-Star Team this season.
  • He was named the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week on six different occasions this season.
  • Wall also served as an alternate captain in 2019-20, becoming the first UMass Lowell goaltender to wear either a ‘C’ or an ‘A’ on his jersey since Dwayne Roloson in 1993-94.
  • Wall’s 58 career wins with UMass Lowell are the most by a goaltender since the school began playing in Division 1, and he broke Dwayne Roloson’s record of 51 wins during the 2019-20 season.
  • He established collegiate career-bests in appearances (37), wins (26), and GAA (2.06) as a freshman in 2016-17, and he established a UMass Lowell record for wins by a rookie goaltender (he broke the record previously held by Connor Hellebuyck).
  • Wall also helped UMass Lowell win the Hockey East Championship in 2016-17, and he was named to the Hockey East All-Tournament Team. He posted a 2.10 GAA or better in three of his four collegiate seasons.”
