Observations:

 

February, 2014 – Hrivik, playing his second season as a professional hockey player, has been bit of a disappointment. He almost made the Rangers roster out of training camp last fall, but Rangers sent him down to the AHL. In Hartford, Hrivik hasn't taken a step forward. He is a big, smart kid with slick passing skills and is playing top 6 minutes with powerplay time, but his point production is not there. His effective two-way game will makes him a decent NHL role player, perhaps a future third liner if he put things together after this year’s sophomore slump. Jozsef Kurtosi

 

April, 2013 – Hrivik is a talented winger with excellent vision and a big frame. His first full professional season was cut short due to a concussion and his struggles with consistency as well as speed remained an issue throughout. The Rangers want to see Hrivik use his body in the offensive zone to create opportunities. If he can work on his skating, he possesses the offensive talent to be a scorer at the pro-level. In 2011-12 he led the Connecticut Whale in playoff goals (five) and points with nine in nine games.

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

He is still young, and has the tools to be a scorer. He needs to work on quickness and consistency in order to emerge as a top-flight prospect.
