Connecticut Whale personnel and fans knew rookie left wing Carl Hagelin was plenty fast from the time he played his first pro-game in the playoffs last April.
Hagelin continued to blaze an impressive trail in his first 17 games this season after being among the Rangers’ final cuts, getting seven goals and six assists to earn a call-up on Nov. 24. Hagelin, who co-captained the University of Michigan to the NCAA championship game a year ago, also showed well almost from the outset in the NHL, getting seven goals and seven assists in his first 16 games.
