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 with eight penalty minutes, and also saw action in 38 games with the ECHL’s Chicago Express (1-3-4, 20 PIM).  Injury limited Delisle’s 2010-11 season to six Central Hockey League games with the Fort Wayne Komets. The Whale’s next action is this Friday night, December 21, when they travel to Manchester to take on the Monarchs in a 7:00 game (“Beethoven Radio” AM 1290, www.ctwhale.com, video streaming at www.ahllive.com).  The next home game for the Whale is this Saturday night, December 22 vs. the Providence Bruins at 7:00, and that is “Military Appreciation Night”.  There will be a jersey auction in the second intermission to benefit the VFW of Connecticut, and that game also features the Whale’s annual “Teddy Bear Toss”.  Fans are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped soft toys to the game and, when the Whale scores its first goal, heave them on to the ice to be donated to local children’s charities.  Also, teddy bears will be for sale in the XL Center atrium, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Tickets for all Whale regular season home games at the XL Center, are on sale now at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, through TicketMaster Charge-by-Phone at 1-800-745-3000 and on-line at www.ticketmaster.com. Season tickets for the Whale’s 2012-13 AHL season are also available. For information on season seats, and all of the Whale’s many ticketing options, visit www.ctwhale.com, or call the CT Whale ticket office at (860) 548-2000 to talk with an account executive today.
