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.

With a last name synonymous with hockey greatness, one would think Ryan Bourque has been a rink rat almost from the time he departed the womb.
Well, think again.
Unlike Hall of Fame father Ray and older brother Chris, Ryan left hockey-mad Boston for Denver before realizing at age 11 that the sport featuring skates, sticks and pucks was more enjoyable than soccer.
But now Ryan is on the verge of a professional hockey career thanks largely to guidance from dad and bro’ that led to being the New York Rangers’ third-round pick in 2009.
