Whale notes: Hrivik out with concussion, Whale sign Shayne Wiebe

Marek Hrivik, who many speculated would get a long look at camp (well, under normal camp) is out with a concussion. This could be one of the reasons why Hrivik may not be invited to the Rangers mini-camp this year. However with camps set to occur during the AHL season, and lasting only a week, it is unlikely that the Rangers would call up the majority of Connecticut’s roster. Chris Kreider and Matt Gilroy are the only two who have left the Whale at the moment, and there’s no reason to believe anyone else will leave for mini camp.

In other news, the Whale have officially signed forward Shayne Wiebe to an AHL contract. Wiebe had been with the Whale on a PTO since November 17, when he was called up from the Greenville Road Warriors. In 14 games since his call up, Wiebe has a pair of assists and two PIMs. While with the Road Warriors, Wiebe had a line of 7-5-12 and 10 PIMs in 12 games.

  • Hope this not anything serious. Is it me, or are there a sh*t load of concussions lately. I bet in years past, these same players were told to play, and not complain, where now they are aware of the long term implications that go along with concussions, and force them to rest!

    • Helmet technology hasn’t expanded to keep up with athlete training advances.

      Mouthguards sure would help a ton of players though.
