A strong crop of players will be taken throughout the first round, though who exactly will be left for the Rangers at No. 9 appears up in the air. At this point, it would seem unlikely winger Filip Zadina, center Jesperi Kotkaniemi or defenseman Quinn Hughes will be available after eight picks, though there are varied opinions on how things will play out after Rasmus Dahlin and Andrei Svechnikov likely go No. 1 to Buffalo and No. 2 to Carolina, respectively, to kick things off.
