Rookie Backed up in Two Games for Whale
Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned goaltender Jason Missiaen from the Whale to its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Missiaen served as the Whale’s backup in two games, after joining Connecticut from Greenville Wednesday. In 10 ECHL games with the Road Warriors, the first-year pro is 5-3-1, with a 2.43 goals-against average, 92.6% save percentage and three shutouts. He signed as a free agent with the Rangers March 24, 2011
Missiaen returns to Greenville after backing up the last two games for the American Hockey League‘s Connecticut Whale. He is 5-3-1 with the Road Warriors this season with a 2.43 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage. His three shutouts are tied for second most in the league while his goal-against average would rank sixth and save percentage fifth if he had enough minutes played to be counted with the league leaders.
Missiaen has arrived in Chicago where the Road Warriors will square off against the Express at 4:00 p.m. CST this evening and he is expected to be in the lineup.
