Greenville Road WarriorsBY: Ray Schmitt, Voice of the Greenville Road Warriors

The Greenville Road Warriors announced today that defenseman Blake Parlett has been reassigned by the New York Rangers to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League.

Parlett, in his second professional season, was assigned to Greenville by the Rangers from Connecticut on February 25. He went on to play seven games with the Road Warriors and log four points (1G, 3A). He also compiled a +3 rating. With the seven games under his belt, Parlett is eligible to be placed on the Road Warriors’ playoff roster. An ECHL All-Star as a rookie last season, the 6-1, 205-pound defenseman has produced 36 points (8G, 28A) in 53 ECHL games with the Road Warriors.

Parlett re-joins the Whale where he has notched 14 points (4G, 10A) in 50 games this season. As a rookie he recorded 12 points (2G, 10A) in just 24 games for Connecticut. His efforts earned him an NHL contract when he signed with the Rangers on June 2, 2011.
