Michigan's Boo Nieves Signs with New York Rangers

Patrick Barron

Michigan outgoing senior Boo Nieves has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the New York Rangers, who selected  Nieves in the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft.

Nieves never quite lived up to the expectations he came to Michigan with as a top-60 NHL Draft pick. He was an incredibly skilled playmaking forward, but despite his size, never quite showed the aggressiveness to get to dirty areas of the ice and be a consistent goal-scorer. He finished his Michigan career with 110 points, but he finished with only 28 goals in his three years, with a season-high 10 coming in his senior season.

Nieves will report to the Rangers AHL affiliate in Hartford for the rest of the season, with his two-year contract with the Rangers kicking in next season.
