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.
The Rangers defeated the Minnesota Wild, 3-2, tonight at Xcel Energy Center, and have now won four of the last five games.

The Rangers will face-off against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center (8:00 p.m.; TV: MSG Network; Radio: 1050 ESPN Radio), to begin a back-to-back road set. The Blueshirts currently sit atop the Eastern Conference standings, and rank second in the league overall, with a record of 47-21-7 (101 pts.). The Rangers enter the contest having defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-3, in the shootout on Saturday at Air Canada Centre, and have won three of the last four games. The Wild enter the contest with a 31-34-10 (72 pts.) record to rank 13th in the Western Conference, and have lost five of the last seven games. Following the contest, the Rangers will face-off against the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday, Mar. 28, at MTS Centre (7:00 p.m.), to conclude their back-to-back set.
Andrew 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.

While he is yet to score in his three games, he did manage to get himself ousted from yesterday’s battle with the Sound Tigers with a five minute boarding major and a game misconduct.
Yogan is a big boy. He’s 6’3 and 203 pounds and really wants to make it to the next level. If his effort on the ice in the limited run is any indication, that could possibly happen.
Here’s the release from the Rangers.
Chris Kreider looks more and more like pro material when the postseason arrives.
Kreider, the New York Rangers’ first-round pick (19th overall) in 2009, scored both Boston College goals in a 2-0 victory over Air Force in the NCAA men’s hockey tournament Northeast Regional semifinals Saturday night at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass.
“The kid who scored their two goals,” Air Force coach Frank Serratore said. “Where is he going to be in three weeks, New York?”

The Blueshirts are now 7-6-0 against Original Six opponents this season.
The Rangers were defeated by the Buffalo Sabres, 4-1, tonight at Madison Square Garden, to finish their seven-game homestand with a 4-3-0 mark.
