Rangers Daily Prospect Update -- Aug. 4

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers
David Skokan, the Rangers' seventh-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, notched his first goal of the European preseason on Tuesday, helping Slovakia's Slovan Bratislava beat Moscow Spartak of the KHL 4-3 in a shootout. Former Rangers defenseman Ivan Baranka was in the lineup for Spartak. Two European players drafted by the Rangers in 2004 went head-to-head on Tuesday in the Czech Republic's preseason Tipsport Cup competition at Mlada Boleslav. Roman Psurny's Usti nad Labem team beat Zdenek Bahensky and host Mlada Boleslav 5-4 on a game-winning goal at 6:21 of the third period. It was a big game for both Rangers draftees, particularly Bahensky, who had a goal and an assist. Bahensky's goal, scored at 1:55 of the third period, tied the game at 4-4. Psurny had an assist on Milan Mikulik's goal at 9:02 of the second period, but also spent a lot of time in the penalty box after receiving a minor and misconduct for hitting from behind at 8:11 of the opening period.
