Parenteau called up from Hartford
Winger has been AHL's top scorer with eight goals in nine games
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward P.A. Parenteau has been recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Parenteau has registered five multi-point efforts this season, including three straight (four goals and seven points) entering today. He notched his first hat trick as a Wolf Pack player, including his first penalty-shot goal with Hartford, on October 10 against Springfield. Last season, Parenteau finished ninth in the AHL in points with 29 goals and 78 points, and was named a First-Team AHL All-Star.
The Hull, Quebec native was acquired by the Rangers from the Chicago Blackhawks on October 11, 2007, in exchange for a conditional draft pick. He was originally Anaheim’s ninth round selection, 264th overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
