HARTFORD, January 14, 2013: Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned forward Jason Wilson to the Whale from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors.
Wilson, a 2010 Ranger fifth-round draft pick (130th overall) has skated in 20 games with the Road Warriors, scoring one goal and adding four assists for five points. The 6-2, 205-pound second-year pro also has 53 penalty minutes, which ranks him fifth on the Greenville club. Prior to being assigned to the Road Warriors November 29, the 22-year-old Wilson had missed the Whale’s first 17 games due to injury.
