Evan Rankin(15) Rochester Americans

Undrafted, 5th year pro, right winger Evan Rankin(15) spent more time in the AHL this season with Rochester Americans than he did in a lower league. He spent his most of his first three campaigns almost entirely in the ECHL or the CHL, where he played in his rookie year.

He was called up in late November, signed to a pto and never looked back. By early March, the 6’1″ 196 lbs. forward inked an spc to finish out 2011/2012 with the team.

He arguably ended up having a career year scoring 15 goals and adding 14 assists in 35 games. He also didn’t get thrown in the penalty box much with 12 pims and is accountable on the ice at a +9 plus/minus.

For 2012/2013, he was rewarded with an AHL contract to return to the Amerks. This 26-year old could be a late bloomer.

We love this moment from his personal life that’s made it’s way to youtube. masterful.
