2010 NHL Draft 10th Pick, New York Rangers Select Dylan McIlrath, Moose Jaw Warriors Defensemen

The free fall of Cam Fowler and Brandon Gormley continue with the selection of Dylan McIlrath from the Moose Jaw Warriors. McIlrath is a physical defenseman with 271 penalty minutes and 19 fighting majors in 2009-10.

From our Buffalo Sabres site, Die By The Blade

McIlrath is an old-school, physical, stay-at-home defenseman. Some of the older Sabres fans will remember physical defensemen Jim Schoenfeld and Jerry "King Kong" Korab. While the nickname "King Kong" has already been taken, McIlrath goes by "Big Mac Truck" while playing in Moose Jaw.

McIlrath is the type of physical player that Sabres fans love and appreciate. McIlrath will drop the gloves whenever he needs to and will not back down to anyone.

The Rangers are going to be questioned on this selection with the defensemen that were on the board ranked ahead of McIlrath.
