January 2014 – Four years after being selected as a high first rounder, the Rangers are yet to get significant use of their investment. It’s been a slow growing experience for the big man whose size was above pro quality leaving junior, but his development has been interrupted a couple times with knee injuries. With the management on Broadway moving out Del Zotto recently, rumors of Dan Girardi leaving also and Anton Stralman underperforming, the Rangers seem ready to move forward with Coner Allen and McIlrath in the near future. Penalty minute hounds take notice. Jason Banks


March 2013 - A dislocated knee in December sidetracked McIlraith, but otherwise he's been as advertised - huge, tough, and gritty. He's looking more and more like a future enforcer, assuming that role is still around in three years. Dobber


April 2012 - He is a big, bruising defender and one of the most feared enforcers in the WHL. In 52 games he put up 23 points for the Moose Jaw Warriors. After being criticized for his lackluster skating and less than impressive offensive skills, he has improved a bit in both areas to become a complete defenseman.  If he can continue to grow as a player he could become a second or third pairing, shutdown guy in the NHL. Zenon Herasymiuk


Fantasy Outlook: D


Will never put up huge numbers, but will rack up a lot of PIM.




First NHL fight, takes on one of the current best in the buisness.
