BICKEL IN NY, NOW ERIXON TOO

It was released yesterday that Sut Bickel was called up to the New York Rangers due to the hits to the team’s defensive corps. Now comes word out of the Ranger’s beat reporters that Tim Erixon is ALSO heading up to New York.  Add in the unknown status at this point of Wade Redden, who left Saturday night’s game after crashing into the net with Chad Johnson and Blake Parlett and there is a REAL need for help on the blueline in the Connecticut capitol.

The Whale recalled Lee Baldwin from Greenville today; that takes care of one,  but it’s a safe bet that someone else will be heading up north from Greenville as well at least on a temporary basis. The two most likely to come would be Wes Cunningham, who just played for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on a call-up or perhaps Jyri Niemi.
