Last week, I selected my team MVP and in keeping with the theme, it's time to dish out some other awards - rookie of the year, biggest surprise, most improved player, top goalie and top defenceman.
Rookie of the year: Nick Magyar
With 15 first year players on the roster this season, this was easily the award with the most competition.
The winner was a bit of a no-brainer. Magyar is tied for the team lead in scoring with 43 points and will likely become the first rookie since Derek Roy to win the Rangers' scoring title, assuming Justin Bailey (upper body) doesn't return.
The Ohio native sits fourth in OHL rookie scoring and has been one of the most consistent players on the roster all season.
He's expected to go anywhere from the second to fourth round in the upcoming NHL draft and will be a key piece in next season's offence.
Honourable mentions: Frank Hora, Ryan MacInnis
Biggest surprise: Logan Schmidt
I'm not sure anyone, except maybe Schmidt himself, figured the free agent signee would be a regular and the second leading scorer among Rangers' blueliners this season.
And while he looks a tad fatigued of late - entirely understandable given the minutes he's logged - the puck moving defenceman is no doubt the nicest surprise from the first-year lot.
He has found a home on the power play and has made the transition from Jr. B to the OHL with relative ease.
Honourable mentions: Frank Hora, Darby Llewellyn
Most improved player: Darby Llewellyn
The Michigan native went from a seven goal rookie campaing to 24 this season. He's just one marker away from tying team leader Justin Bailey.
Llewellyn has also increased his point total from 13 to 35 and because of it, is pegged to go in this year's NHL draft.
The 17-year-old has tailed off down the stretch - he has two goals in his past 16 games - but that happens to younger players. Had he kept up the pace, he would be in the team MVP discussion.
Nonetheless, he is a big piece up front moving forward.
Honourable mentions: Curtis Meighan, Max Iafrate
Top goalie: Jordan DeKort and Matt Greenfield
Hey, it's tough to pick one goalie in a year where both have split netminding duties.
The duo has flip flopped starts for about half the season which makes it hard to pick one over the other.
Besides, they have had similar performances by looking unbeatable at times to showing that there is a lot of improvement to be had.
Honestly, I'm not sure the issue of next year's starter has been resolved at this point. My guess is that the job goes to whoever starts the season off the hottest. Until then, we may see more shared duty in the crease.
Top defenceman: Max Iafrate
He brings toughness, grit and an offensive touch.
Iafrate's 29 points was a career high and led all Rangers' blueliners.
He has been a reliable d-man in a year that has seen a lot of new faces in the back end.
The Rangers are 0-7 since he left the lineup with an upper body injury. And I think that really underscores his impact on the club.
Iafrate is set to return next season as an overage player.
Honourable mentions: Ben Fanelli, Frank Hora
