HARTFORD, December 29, 2012:  Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that defensemen Jyri Niemi and Steven Delisle have been reassigned from the Whale from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors. Niemi is scoreless with five penalty minutes in five games with the Whale this year.  He had been out of action for the last 18 Whale games, after being injured in a game November 11 at Bridgeport.  Delisle had suited up for four games for the Whale after coming up from Greenville December 18.  The second-year pro registered two assists and six PIM in those four contests, and Delisle has 2-8-10 with 43 PIM in 29 ECHL games with the Road Warriors.  He was also tied for the league plus/minus lead, with a +19, when he was reassigned to the Whale. The Whale return to action tonight, visiting the Northeast Division-leading Springfield Falcons for a 7:00 PM game (“Beethoven Radio” AM 1290, www.ctwhale.com, video streaming at www.ahllive.com).  The next home game for Connecticut is Friday, January 4 against the Adirondack Phantoms at 7:00, and at all Friday-night Whale home games fans can enjoy $1 hot dogs and $2 beers until the end of the first intermission. Whale tickets start as low as $10 each ($12 each when tickets are purchased on the day of the game), 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.
