Rangers rookie enforcer shows battlescars five games into career

Published February 27, 2024 at 2:32 PM

Matt Rempe is five games into his National Hockey League career. His penalty minutes are more than his collective time on ice, and now the monster rookie enforcer looks like he has been through a war, as presented in the tweet below from the Twitter account Missin' Curfew and reporter Greg Wyshnski.

In the five fights Rempe has had the opportunity to be involved in, he has arguably a 4-1 record while only being tested by the Philadelphia Flyers, tough guy Nicholas Deslauriers, and Columbus Blue Jackets right winger Mathieu Olivier.

Whether Rempe will become the premier National Hockey League enforcer is yet to be seen, and honestly, it's far too early to tell, but the youngster has already made an impression by suiting up for the team that plays on Broadway.

However, in 2024, the hockey world puts far too much emphasis on how a young player performs early in their career, as if it will make or break them. Although the small sample size is promising, it will be great to see if the Rangers can fit the 21-year-old into their full-time plans next season.
