Hagelin, 23, tallied the primary assist on the shorthanded, game-tying goal with 1:11 remaining in regulation in Connecticut’s 3-2 overtime win vs. Portland yesterday.  He has registered seven goals and six assists for 13 points, along with six penalty minutes in 17 games this season.  Hagelin is currently tied for first on the team in goals, tied for second in points and tied for fifth in assists.  The AHL rookie also leads the team with a plus-12 rating, and is tied for first on the Whale with one shorthanded goal.  Hagelin is tied for 10th among AHL rookies in scoring and is tied for sixth in goals, while his plus-12 rating is tied for second in the league overall.  Hagelin posted a season-high, five-game point streak from November 4 vs. St. John’s to November 18 vs. Bridgeport (four goals, two assists), including a four-game goal streak during the stretch.

The Sodertalje, Sweden native was originally selected as the Rangers’ sixth round choice, 168th overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Mitchell, 26, tallied two assists, including one on the overtime game-winner, in Connecticut’s 3-2 overtime win vs. Portland yesterday.  He has registered seven goals and seven assists for 14 points, along with 20 penalty minutes in 17 games this season.  Mitchell currently leads Connecticut in scoring, is tied for first in goals and tied for second in assists.  He is also tied for second on the Whale in power play goals (two) and tied for third in shots on goal (38).  Mitchell has registered four multi-point performances, including a three-point effort on October 21 vs. Manchester (one goal, two assists).

The Oakville, Ontario native was originally selected as Toronto’s fifth round choice, 158th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.  He was acquired by the Rangers from Toronto in exchange for a seventh round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft on February 28, 2011.
