Seven Kitchener Rangers' prospects heard their names called at the 2022 NHL Draft, held Thursday and Friday in Montreal.

Two of those players were drafted in the first round. Winger Cutter Gauthier (a 2020 fourth-round pick of Kitchener), was selected fifth-overall by the Philadelphia Flyers. Montreal also selected winger Filip Mesar 26th overall. He was a first-round pick of the Rangers in the 2021 CHL Import Draft.

In the second round, defenceman Mattias Havelid was selected by the San Jose Sharks. The blueliner was a second-round pick of the Rangers in this year's CHL Import draft.

The other Rangers' prospects drafted were:

- Devin Kaplan -- winger -- selected 69th-overall by Philadelphia

- George Fegaras -- defenceman -- selected 83rd-overall by Dallas

- Tomas Hamara -- defenceman -- selected 87th-overall by Ottawa

- Owen Mehlenbacher -- centre -- selected 201st-overall by Detroit

Since 1969, the Rangers have had 165 players selected in the NHL Draft. It is the fourth-most of any club in the Ontario Hockey League.
