HARTFORD, November 29, 2012: Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that forwards Andrew Yogan and Jason Wilson have been reassigned from the Whale to its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Yogan, a rookie and a fourth-round (100th overall) selection by the parent New York Rangers in the 2010 NHL Draft, has one goal and 11 penalty minutes in 11 games this season with the Whale, and had missed the last four contests due to injury. Wilson, who was also a 2010 Ranger pick (fifth round, 130th overall), has just been cleared to play, after sitting out the Whale’s first 17 games due to injury. Last season with Greenville, Wilson had 4-10-14 totals, with 102 PIM, in 56 games.
The Whale start a three-game weekend tomorrow night, Friday, November 30, with a trip to Providence to take on the Bruins (7:05 PM faceoff, “Beethoven Radio” AM 1290, www.ctwhale.com). Then, Connecticut is home both Saturday and Sunday, vs. Syracuse and Springfield respectively. Saturday’s game against the Crunch faces off at 7:00 at the XL Center, and the first 3,000 fans receive a free Whale poster from SuperCuts. The Whale and Falcons face off at 5:00 on Sunday, and, as at all Sunday Whale home games, fans can take advantage of “Click It or Ticket Family Value Packs”. Those consist of a ticket, a hot dog or a slice of pizza and a soda, all for just $18.
