The former owner of the Hartford Whalers says he and the NHL’s New York Rangers are ending their marketing agreement for the Connecticut Whale minor league hockey team.
Stu Bickel continues to see limited ice time and repeatedly makes costly turnovers. Why not give talented 21-year-old Tim Erixon a chance?
Ryan Callahan has always been praised for the defensive side of his game but his offensive attributes have often been overlooked. That might change this season as he’s on pace for 33 goals.
The New York Rangers denied rumors that Sean Avery refused to play for the Connecticut Whale and spat at head coach Ken Gernander.
Sean Avery is back in the American Hockey League. The New York Rangers assigned the veteran winger to the Connecticut Whale after he cleared waivers Saturday.
Whether it be maturity or wanting to prove himself, this season Del Zotto looks like a different player for the Rangers.
Rangers fans have seen enough. They want Sean Avery, exiled in Hartford of the AHL, back on John Tortorella’s bench.
The noted agitator cleared waivers Wednesday and was assigned to the Connecticut Whale of the AHL. The move clears his $1.93 million from the team’s salary cap.
Tell us how you really feel, Torts. Sean Avery has lost out on the Rangers’ final roster spot — and New York’s coach wasn’t about to mince words Tuesday.
Under the arrangement, both New Jersey and the AHL’s Albany Devils may assign players to Kalamazoo.
The Devils have signed Swedish defenseman Adam Larsson, the No. 4 pick in last month’s NHL draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract. “This young man is as mature as he can get at his young age,” general manager Lou Lamoriello said on Friday.
The former owner of the Hartford Whalers is expected to announce that he is taking control of the city’s minor league hockey team.
