NEW YORK, February 5, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned forward Brandon Mashinter to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).

He posted a four-game point streak from January 20 at Providence to January 26 against Springfield, tallying two goals and four assists over the span. Mashinter has recorded five goals and seven assists for 12 points, along with 58 penalty minutes in 38 total games with Connecticut and Worcester this season.
