HARTFORD, April 18, 2012:  Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has released defenseman Peter Ceresnak from his Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement.

Ceresnak, a rookie out of the Ontario Hockey League and a sixth-round (172nd overall) draftee by the parent New York Rangers in 2011, had yet to dress for a game since joining the Whale from the Peterborough Petes March 21.

The Whale start their best-of-five, Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers tomorrow night, Thursday, April 19, at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, with faceoff at 7:00 PM (“The Rock” 106.9 WCCC-FM, www.ctwhale.com).  Game Two of the series will also be in Bridgeport, this Saturday, April 21 at 7:00, before the series switches to the XL Center in Hartford for Game Three this Sunday, April 22.  Faceoff for that contest will be 5:00.  A Game Four, if it is necessary, would be in Hartford next Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00, and if the series went the full five games, a decisive Game Five would be next Saturday, April 28 in Bridgeport at 7:00.

Tickets to Game Three at the XL Center are on sale now at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, as well as on-line at www.ctwhale.com and through TicketMaster Charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Playoff ticket packages are also available that include tickets to all possible home playoff games.  To speak to a Whale account executive about a playoff ticket package, call (860) 728-3366.  More information is available at www.ctwhale.com.
