HARTFORD, March 10, 2012:  Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned defenseman Blake Parlett to the Whale from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.

Prior to being assigned to Greenville February 24, Parlett, a second-year pro, skated in 50 games this year with the Whale, scoring four goals and adding 10 assists for 14 points, with 34 penalty minutes.  In seven ECHL games with the Road Warriors, he scored one goal and added three assists for four points and was +3 with four penalty minutes.

Parlett signed with the Rangers as a free agent June 2, 2011, after playing last season with the Whale on an AHL contract.

The Whale are back in home-ice action tonight at the XL Center, hosting the Norfolk Admirals on CT Hockey Hall of Fame Night (7:00 PM faceoff).  A new class of 2012 inductees into the CT Hockey Hall of Fame will be saluted, with that class including Brian Leetch, Blaine Stoughton, Mike Liut, Pat Verbeek, Ken Gernander, Julie Chu and William E. Barnes.  There will be an induction ceremony during the first intermission, and fans can take home a special souvenir of the night, as 5,000 Hall of Fame posters will be given away, courtesy of SuperCuts.  There will also be autograph opportunities and a classic Connecticut hockey jersey auction.  For all the details, log on to www.ctwhale.com.  This will be the first class of inductees since 1990, as the CT Hockey Hall of Fame has adopted eight members from the storied Hartford Whalers Hall of Fame.

Tickets to CT Hockey Hall of Fame Night, and all 2011-12 Whale home games, are on sale now at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, as well as on-line at www.ctwhale.com and through TicketMaster Charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.
