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, had returned to the Whale from Greenville March 10 and played in four games in his latest AHL stint. All told this season, Parlett has suited up for 54 games with the Whale, scoring four goals and adding 10 assists for 14 points while logging 34 penalty minutes. In seven ECHL games with the Road Warriors, he has scored one goal and added three assists for four points, and is +3 with four penalty minutes.
Parlett 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 tomorrow night, Friday, March 23, hosting the Portland Pirates at the XL Center in a 7:00 PM game. Fans can take advantage of a special food combo deal, available for all remaining Whale regular-season Friday-night home games, at that game. A hot dog and a 12-ounce soda can be purchased for only $5. The Whale also play at home this Saturday night, March 24 at 7:00, locking horns with the Providence Bruins.
