LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 26: Andrew Yogan, drafted in the fourth round by the New York Rangers, poses for a portrait during the 2010 NHL Entry Draft at Staples Center on June 26, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)
If you’ve been following the Whale closely this season, then you’ve surely noticed that forwards Andrew Yogan (4th, 2010) and Jason Wilson (5th, 2010) have been healthy scratches with the Whale for a good portion of the season. There are more forwards on the depth chart that are ahead of these two prospects, and it had been hurting their playing time. Connecticut General Manager Jim Schoenfeld has decided to send them both to the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL. Considering Wilson has not played a game in the AHL all year, and Yogan hasn’t played since the 11th game of the year for Connecticut (netting one goal and a -4 rating in the process), this move isn’t that surprising. In the ECHL, Yogan and Wilson will likely get more playing time, which should help their development. However, it’s worth noting that very few players who spend significant time in the ECHL make it to the pro level. Dan Girardi is the exception, not the rule. Tweet
