The Whale Week That Was - December 21, 2011



Jonathan Audy-Marchessault ranks third among AHL rookies with 25 points


Jonathan Audy-Marchessault ranks third among AHL rookies with 25 points

Every Wednesday we’ll take a look at the status of the Rangers’ AHL affiliate. Top prospects Mats Zuccarello, Ryan Bourque and Tim Erixon are key players for the Whale this season - we’ll check on how they’re doing and how the team performs as the season progresses.

- Connecticut has struggled against the rival Bridgeport Sound Tigers this season, but on Friday the Whale crushed the Sound Tigers 6-3.  Many of Bridgeport’s best players have been recalled by the Islanders, but the Rangers have plucked away several of Connecticut’s stars as well.  Connecticut went three-for-five on the power play and received two goals from Jonathan Audy-Marchessault and Brendan Bell and one each from Jared Nightingale and Andreas ThuressonKris Newbury tallied four assists for the Whale and Andre Deveaux had three helpers.

- On Saturday the Whale fell to the Providence Bruins in a shootout 2-1.  Newbury scored Connecticut’s only goal off a feed from Audy-MarchessaultChad Johnson made 29 saves for Connecticut.  Wade Redden was involved in a major collision involving the goalpost and left the game. 

- Connecticut continues to lead the Northeast Division by four points.

- Audy-Marchessault ranks third among AHL rookies with 25 points in 28 games.  He is tied for 18th in the league overall.

- The Rangers recalled defensemen Stu Bickel and Tim Erixon from the Whale to fill in for injured players, but Connecticut made a slew of transactions of its own.

- Last Wednesday the Whale recalled forward Jeff Prough from the Greenville Road Warriors.  Prough was Greenville’s leading scorer with 25 points (12 goals, 13 assists) in 21 games.

- On Thursday the Whale recalled forward Brendan Connolly from Greenville.  But on Saturday Connecticut deleted Connolly’s PTO.

- Without Redden, Bickel and Erixon, the Whale recalled defenseman Lee Baldwin from Greenville on Monday.  Connecticut also recalled defenseman Sam Klassen yesterday. 

- Mitch Beck believes that since Baldwin and Klassen were recalled, the Whale is “finished” with Jyri Niemi.

- Check out this profile of Bickel.

- Bruce Berlet did a profile of Kelsey Tessier.  Berlet also profiles Newbury.

- The week ahead: Connecticut will host the Adirondack Phantoms tonight at 7:00 p.m.  The Whale is then off until Monday when Connecticut will visit the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.  Connecticut will play again on Tuesday, home against the Albany Devils.
