HARTFORD, November 17, 2012:  Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has signed forward Shayne Wiebe to a Professional Tryout (PTO) agreement. Wiebe, a 6-0, 190-pound native of Brandon, Manitoba, played one game earlier in the season for the Whale and was scoreless, before being released and joining the Whale’s ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.  In 12 games with Greenville, the 22-year-old Wiebe was a team-best +9, while contributing seven goals and five assists for 12 points, along with ten penalty minutes.  His seven goals were good for second on the Road Warrior team, and Wiebe ranked third on the club in points. The Whale return to action tonight, traveling to Worcester to meet the Sharks in a 7:00 PM game.  All the action of that contest can be heard on “The Rock” 106.9 WCCC, and on-line at www.ctwhale.com.  The Whale’s next home game is next Saturday, November 24 vs. the defending Calder Cup-champion Norfolk Admirals, and fans can enjoy a doubleheader of hockey action that day at the XL Center.  Prior to Whale vs. Admirals at 7:00, the UConn Men’s Hockey Huskies will take on Air Force in an NCAA Division I hockey battle.  That game faces off at 3:30, and one ticket is good for both the college game and the Whale game.  The XL Center will serve as UConn’s home ice for Hockey East contests when the Men’s Huskies join the nation’s most prestigious conference in 2014-15. Tickets for all Whale regular season home games at the XL Center, are on sale now at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, through TicketMaster Charge-by-Phone at 1-800-745-3000 and on-line at www.ticketmaster.com. Season tickets for the Whale’s 2012-13 AHL season are also available. For information on season seats, and all of the Whale’s many ticketing options, visit www.ctwhale.com, or call the CT Whale ticket office at (860) 548-2000 to talk with an account executive today.
