Rangers Recall Weise, Re-Assign LockeApril 4, 2010, by
The Rangers have called up RW Dale Weise. This is Weise’s first ever call up to the NHL. In 73 games this season with the Wolfpack, Weise has put together a line of 28-21-49 with 114 PIMs. According to Mitch Beck of Howlings.net, Weise is one of the players on the Hartford roster that is NHL ready. To make room on the roster, center Corey Locke was re-assigned to the AHL. In his three game call up, Locke was held off the scoreboard and finished with a +1 rating.
Following the trade deadline, NHL clubs are allowed a maximum of four call ups until the end of the season. With Weise’s call up, the Rangers will not be allowed to make any more call ups for the rest of the season. This includes players like Locke who were called up and then sent back down.
