HARTFORD, December 18, 2012: Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that defenseman Steven Delisle has been reassigned to the Whale from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Delisle, a 6-6, 234-pound second-year pro, has skated in 29 games with the Road Warriors this year and has scored two goals and added eight assists for 10 points. The 22-year-old Levis, Quebec native has also served 43 minutes in penalties and is a +19, which ties him with teammate Mike Marcou for the ECHL league lead in that department.
A fourth-round draftee (107th overall) by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2008 out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Delisle was acquired by the New York Rangers July 23, 2012, along with Rick Nash and a conditional third-round draft pick, in exchange for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a 2013 first-round pick.
Delisle suited up for six games with the AHL’s Springfield Falcons last year, going scoreless w...

Connecticut has recalled defenseman Steven Delisle from Greenville of the ECHL. Delisle, who was the throw-in in the Rick Nash trade, has a line of 2-8-10 with a +19 rating in 29 games with the Road Warriors. His +19 rating was tops in the league.
Delisle will likely look to help a weak blue line for the Whale, which has struggled mightily all season long.
Brian Boyle will be a key cog of the bottom six.
Last week we took an early look at the Rangers potential top 6 line combinations. I think the majority of us agree some iteration of Ryan Callahan, Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards, Rick Nash, Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan will comprise our top 2 scoring lines. With that said, the Rangers bottom six is a bit less certain.
This is a bit old, but J.T. Miller and Brady Skjei have both made the US team for this year’s World Junior Championships. Miller, who was on the team last year, will likely be named captain prior to the start of the tournament. This will be Skjei’s first year with the club. Skjei has already received comparisons to Ryan McDonagh, but it’s a bit early in the game to be making...

Well this is going to make me very popular among the other New York Ranger bloggers but really what else can I say when I am watching all these "expert" opinions on how well the Ranger prospects are not doing?
This lockout is leaving bloggers without Ranger content to write about so they turn to the CT Whale or the other Ranger prospects. I have...

"He’s the lone returning forward and has professional experience. The word that keeps popping up when they mention him is mature. It sounds like Miller is embracing his role."
