Bob CrawfordBY: Bob Crawford, Voice of the CT Whale

Among the three most recent additions to the Whale roster, two, forward Andrew Yogan and defenseman Peter Ceresnak, were both Ranger draft picks and had been on the organization’s radar screen for at least a year.  The other, winger Steve Moses, though, was somewhat of an unknown commodity when he joined the Whale last week.

Early reviews are quite positive, however, for Moses, a Leominster, MA native who suited up for his first two pro games this past Saturday against Providence and Sunday at Bridgeport, after finishing a four-year career at the University of New Hampshire.

THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG…YOGAN SIGNED

yoganAndrew Yogan signed a contract with the New York Rangers today and he’s more than just a little likely to start next season in Hartford with the Whale. Yogan had just signed an Amateur Try-Out contract last week after completing his season with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL.
