Prospects with Connections to the Rangers

From Jim Cerny at NewYorkRangers.com:

Tinordi’s dad played for four NHL teams over the course of his career, originally signing with the Rangers as an undrafted free agent on Jan. 4, 1987. Tinordi appeared in 24 games with the Blueshirts during his rookie campaign of 1987-88 and racked up 50 penalty minutes. He was traded to Minnesota at the end of the season and went on to play with the North Stars, Dallas Stars, and Washington Capitals before retiring. Tinordi the elder played in 663 NHL games and picked up 1514 career penalty minutes.

Brock Beukeboom is not exactly a carbon copy of his dad, the hulking 6-foot-5 defenseman who famously paired with Brian Leetch for years on the Rangers’ back line and helped the Blueshirts win the 1994 Stanley Cup. The younger Beukeboom, listed at 6-foot-1 and 202 pounds, is viewed more as a two-way defenseman who is solid in front of his own net, but equally adept moving the puck offensively. His offensive skills might be more heightened due to the fact that up until two years ago he played forward before switching to his dad’s former position.
