New York, December 14, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Tim Erixon has been recalled from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Erixon, 20, has registered one goal and 11 assists for 12 points, along with 10 penalty minutes in 13 games with Connecticut this season. He currently has a three-game assist streak, tallying four assists during the stretch which began with a two-assist effort on Friday vs. Hershey. Erixon leads all Whale defensemen and is tied for sixth on the team in scoring with 12 points, and ranks second on Connecticut overall in average points per game (0.92) and is tied for third in assists (11). He registered seven points in a five-game span (one goal and six assists), beginning with his first career AHL goal on November 12 at St. John’s and culminating with a career-high, three assists on November 23 vs. Portland. Erixon tallied an assist while making his AHL debut on Novembe...

The Rangers announced they recalled defenseman Tim
Erixon from the CT Whale of the AHL. Erixon has played well in 13 games for the Whale, recording one goal and 11 assists, though he did miss some games with injury a few weeks ago.
The recall does not mean Erixon is guaranteed to play, but could be precautionary since the Rangers have no extra defenders as they head out to St...
Yet another game that the New York Rangers had every opportunity to win, but ended up leaving the rink empty-handed in. First of all, thank God the Rangers and Stars only meet-up once this season because tonight's tilt ranks up there among the most boring hockey games I've ever witnessed. Secondly, nothing stings more than a 1-0 loss, especially with a rookie goaltender in...
