NEW YORK, January 17, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled forward Brandon Segal from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL). Segal, 29, has registered nine goals and seven assists for 16 points, along with 60 penalty minutes in 38 games this season. He is tied for third on the team in goals and shorthanded goals (one), ranks fourth in penalty minutes and third in shots on goal (88). Segal notched a shorthanded goal and posted a plus-three rating in a 6-1 win yesterday at Portland. He posted a season-high, four-game point streak from October 19 at Norfolk to October 26 against Hershey, registering four goals and two assists over the span. A veteran of four NHL seasons, Segal has skated in 102 career NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars, registering 11 goals and 11 assists for 22 points, along with 83 penalty minutes. Segal established NHL career-highs in 2009-10 with six goals, six assists and 12 points while splitting time between Los Angeles and Dallas. He made his NHL debut with Tampa Bay on March 3, 2009, against Pittsburgh, and recorded his first career NHL point with an assist on December 31, 2009, at Minnesota as a member of the Kings. The Richmond, British Columbia native was signed by the Rangers as an unrestricted free agent on July 11, 2012. He was originally selected by the Nashville Predators as a fourth round choice, 102nd overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. Follow Ian on Twitter @soxanddawgs.
