SPOTLIGHT: AUDY-MARCHESSAULT

Bruce Berlet 7BY: Bruce Berlet

Whale rookie Jonathan Audy-Marchessault brings some of the qualities of former Wolf Pack right wing P.A.  Parenteau, as Greenville Road Warriors coach Dean Stork noticed before wanting to sign him for his ECHL team. Unfortunately for Stork, Audy-Marchessault played so well as an invite on the Rangers’ team in the prospects tournament in September in Traverse City, Mich., that he got invited to Rangers camp. When he continued to show well, he earned a spot with the Whale and is now the team’s leading scorer, after getting a goal and an assist Saturday night.

Audy-Marchessault’s goal came on a 35-foot laser from the top of the right circle that cleanly beat Jeff Frazee high to the glove side. He later assisted on rookie Carl Hagelin’s goal off a second primary assist by veteran defenseman Wade Redden. Gernander also put Audy-Marchessault in the fifth and final spot in the shootout. He tried a Denis Savard spin-o-rama move that Frazee stopped, but when Matt Taormina hit the post to the left of Cam Talbot (18 saves), the Whale won the shootout on goals by Zuccarello (brilliant slow-moving fake and deke to the backhand) and defenseman Brendan Bell (quick wrist shot). Zuccarello had nearly won the game 1:17 into overtime, but he hit the post for the second time and then looked skyward in disbelief.

IN THE CORNER WITH BRIAN RING – BUILDING BLOCK WEEKEND

Brian RingBY: Brian Ring

After wrapping up three straight wins last weekend, the Whale will take to the road for a pair of games on Friday and Saturday.

On Saturday (7:05), the Whale will head over to Worcester to meet a traditional rival in the Sharks, who have yet to lose in regulation this year (3-0-0-1).
