HARTFORD, April 18, 2012: Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has released defenseman Peter Ceresnak from his Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement.
Ceresnak, a rookie out of the Ontario Hockey League and a sixth-round (172nd overall) draftee by the parent New York Rangers in 2011, had yet to dress for a game since joining the Whale from the Peterborough Petes March 21.
The Whale start their best-of-five, Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers tomorrow night, Thursday, April 19, at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, with faceoff at 7:00 PM (“The Rock” 106.9 WCCC-FM, www.ctwhale.com). Game Two of the series will also be in Bridgeport, this Saturday, April 21 at 7:00, before the series switches to the XL Center in Hartford for Game Three this Sunday, April 22.

A Game Four, if it is necessary, would be in Hartford next Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00, and if the series went the full five games, a decisive Game Five would be next Saturday, April 28 in Bridgeport at 7:00.
