The Rangers have released their latest prospect report, taking an in-depth look at what's going on for some of their highly-touted future pieces.

Lauri Pajuniemi scored a goal in each of TPS’ two games during the past week. The Rangers’ fifth round pick (132nd overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft extended his point streak to six games (five goals, one assist), which is a Liiga career-high, and he has also posted a plus-one rating in five of the six games.

Nils Lundkvist tallied an assist/point in each of Lulea’s two games during the past week (two assists); he also recorded four shots on goal in 20:09 of ice time on Dec. 17 against IK Oskarshamn, and he posted a plus-two rating on Dec. 19 against IK Oskarshamn. The Rangers’ first round pick (28th overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft has recorded an assist in five of the last six games (five assists), and he has tallied 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in his last 11 contests.

Here's what else happened for Rangers prospects:

  • Adam Edstrom extended his assist/point streak to three games (three assists over the span), and his three-game assist streak and three-game point streak are each SHL career-highs.

  • Zachary Jones has registered four points (two goals, two assists) in eight games with UMass this season. Jones has recorded 27 points (five goals, 22 assists) through 40 career collegiate games with UMass.
