Also, the Whale’s game tomorrow, Tuesday, February 28 and that has an 11am face-off , wiill be broadcast on “Beethoven Radio” WCCC-AM 1290

CLEANING UP THE ROSTER

New York REric Christensen, 28, spent two weeks on a conditioning stint with the Connecticut Whale and has now been traded along with a conditional seventh round pick in the 2013 draft to the Minnesota Wild for 24-year old forward Casey Wellman who has 12g, 14a in 26 games with the Houston Aeros.

Wellman is 6′, 173 pounds and has 2g, 5a in 14 games for Minnesota this season and contributed 4g, 9a in 41 games over the three seasons he’s spent with the Wild.

Christensen, meanwhile had not played for the Rangers since Dec. 17 and has just 5pts (1g, 4a) in 20 games this year. The very soft spoken center-man has played in 132 games with the Rangers and put 58pts on his ledger (20g, 38a) as a Blueshirt.

John Tortorella was never really much of a fan of Christensen, an Edmonton native.  Yes, Christensen is lights out in the shootout, but he has not been able to show any sort of consistency at any other part of his game. Perhaps in Minnesota he will find his game.
