SPOTLIGHT: BRENDAN BELL

Bruce Berlet 7BY: Bruce Berlet

After Tim Erixon had another strong game for the Connecticut Whale last week, including a personal North American pro best of three assists, veteran defenseman Brendan Bell offered kudos about how the Swedish rookie blueliner handled his reassignment from the parent New York Rangers.

“With young players, you’re here to learn, and it takes some time because (the AHL) isn’t an easy league to play in,” said Bell, who played one game with the Rangers after being signed as a free agent in the offseason and before being sent down a second time Oct. 25. “But you hone your craft and you bide your time, and the thing about Tim that’s been good is that he hasn’t been frustrated, he hasn’t pouted, he hasn’t done any of that stuff since he’s been here (Oct. 29). He’s just trying to learn and get better, and he’ll probably get there (the NHL) quicker because of that.”

BRUCE BERLET REPORTS – DEVEAUX, IN THE BELLY OF THE WHALE

BY: Bruce Berlet

Upon reflection, Andre Deveaux had one overriding thought.

“I’m just happy I wasn’t hurt,” Deveaux said.

Happy, indeed.

Deveaux, a noted tough guy, is the latest victim of a seemingly increasing number of senseless hits from behind and the blind side that have unfortunately invaded hockey. Deveaux was run face-first into the boards when the Flyers’ Tom Sestito took a major-league run at the New York Rangers right wing Monday night in Philadelphia. Defenseman Stu Bickel, who played for the Connecticut Whale last season, immediately came to Deveaux’s defense and pummeled Sestito as a melee broke out. Veteran pest Sean Avery also was a major help, and Sestito received a five-minute major for boarding, five minutes for fighting and a game misconduct.

FROM THE CREASE with BRUCE BERLET

BY: Bruce Berlet

Dale Weise got a taste of the NHL last season and would love to have a permanent dose this year.

So to try to give himself the best possible chance to making the New York Rangers, the right wing changed his diet and worked with a trainer, Nate Rubin, for the first time this summer while home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and reported to training this week stronger, thanks largely to eight pounds of muscle mass.

“We set up our own thing and went one-on-one all summer, and I think it really helped me,” Weise said Tuesday while watching others scrimmage at the Madison Square Garden training facility. “Normally I work in a group, but this time I worked one-on-one with (Rubin). I’m leaner than ever. I’m stronger than ever. And I’m a little bit heavier, which I feel good about because I was getting stronger but not really losing my speed.
