The Rangers have announced that they have recalled defenseman Tim Erixon from the CT Whale of the AHL. Erixon has split time with the Rangers and the Whale, starting the season with the big club until being sent down for development purposes after nine games. In those nine games with the Rangers, Erixon did not register a point and finished with a -2 rating. In 13 games with the Whale in the AHL, Erixon has a goal and 11 assists (12 points) and 10 PIMs. He has an even rating. This recall is likely due to the fact that Mike Sauer will not be back for the west coast swing, and the Rangers never travel west without a spare body. My assumption is that he will dress for both games, and that Jeff Woywitka is likely to be the odd man out. Woywitka was pretty solid last night, but it’s a matter of him being out played by both Steve Eminger and Anton Stralman. Last season, injuries forced the Rangers to call up Ryan McDonagh, and he stuck with the team. This year, the Rangers already have Carl Hagelin
