Just one New York Ranger prospect was in action on Monday and that was Tomas Zaborsky and his Saginaw Spirit. The Spirit were on the road facing the Plymouth Whalers taking them to the shootout before losing 3-2.
Zaborsky scored his 24th goal of the season bringing him back into a tie with Ryan Hillier of Halifax for the goal scoring lead among Ranger prospects. At 24-24-48, Zaborsky is now in 2nd place by himself in the prospect scoring race.
Zaborsky though did miss on his shootout attempt which could have kept the shootout going but was stopped by Whaler goalie Jeremy Smith (The Team USA goalie) to preserve the Whaler win.
