Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned defenseman Blake Parlett from the Whale to its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.

Parlett, a second-year pro, has skated in 50 games this year with the Whale, scoring four goals and adding 10 assists for 14 points, with 34 penalty minutes.  He signed with the Rangers as a free agent June 2, 2011, after playing last season with the Whale on an AHL contract.

The Whale are back in action tonight, visiting the Springfield Falcons for a 7:00 game.  All the “Rockin’ Hockey” action can be heard on “The Rock”, 106.9 WCCC-FM and on-line at CTWhale.com.  The Whale’s next home game is this Tuesday, February 28 vs. the Worcester Sharks, with a special school-day morning-start time of 11:00 AM.  Tickets can be purchased on the day of the game for only $10 each Tuesday at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center.
