ON A CLEAR DAY – YOU CAN SEE A LIST

Connecticut WhaleToday is an important day for young hockey players all across the American Hockey League. Today is the day teams submit their “Clear Day List” which is the 22-man roster of players allowed to play in the post-season.

Only the players listed on a team’s Clear Day roster are allowed to play in whatever games that team has over the rest of the AHL regular season and in the 2012 Calder Cup Playoffs. Players can be added on if emergency conditions come about due to recall, injury or suspension.

What surprises await on the list to be released later today?

Hard to say.

Sean Avery fans are certain to wonder if he will be on the list?” The Answer, probably not.

However, will say Lee Baldwin or Blake Parlett be on the list? Maybe one or maybe even both.

What about Jeff Prough or perhaps another forward from Greenville? Perhaps.

One name the team was hoping they could put on the list, forward Chad Kolarik who has missed this entire season to this point with a knee injury, won’t be. Kolarik announced the following on his twitter account, “Cleared for contact, but because I was not on the AHL roster on Feb 27 I cannot play this year. Next goal is to be ready for camp.”

One name fans are hoping to see, but almost certainly won’t be on it, at least for now, is New York Rangers franchise crown jewel, Chris Kreider. He has not signed yet with the Blueshirts, nor has he signed a Professional Try-Out (PTO) with the Whale. But don’t be alarmed. When his college season is over, and it’s not yet, that could easily change as those players, along with their counter-parts in Canadian juniors are allowed to be added without an issue.

SPOTLIGHT: DEFENSE

Bruce Berlet 7BY: Bruce Berlet

The Connecticut Whale defense took a second hit in 24 hours Monday, when rookie Tim Erixon was recalled by the parent New York Rangers on an emergency basis.

The loss of Erixon and Wade Redden, who was injured in Saturday’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Providence Bruins, came a day after the Rangers called up Stu Bickel on an emergency basis. Bickel, among the Rangers’ final cuts, was needed to replace Steve Eminger, who coach John Tortorella told the New York media Monday will be out eight-to-ten weeks with a separated right shoulder sustained when slammed into the boards by Martin Hanzal at 3:16 of the second period of a last-second 3-2 victory at Phoenix on Saturday night.

The Whale swept two games on the weekend, to move back into first place in the Northeast Division, rebounding nicely from the previous weekend’s 0-2-0-0 trip to St. John’s, Newfoundland. The Whale knocked off the Bridgeport Sound Tigers for the first time this season in GEICO Connecticut Cup action with a 3-2 overtime victory on Friday at the XL Center, before defeating the Providence Bruins in a come-from-behind shootout win by the same score on Sunday night in Providence. Brendan Bell scored twice for the Whale on the weekend, including Friday’s overtime game-winner, and also added an assist for a three-point weekend.
