New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Tim Erixon from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Erixon, 21, has tallied eight points (one goal and seven assists) in his last nine games with Connecticut, including a power play goal in a 3-2 win last night against Bridgeport. In the month of March, Erixon has recorded one goal and five assists in six contests.

He has registered three goals and 30 assists for 33 points, along with 36 penalty minutes and a plus-four rating in 43 games with the Whale this season.

Erixon leads all AHL rookie defensemen in assists and ranks third in points. He also leads all team defensemen in points and assists, ranks third on Connecticut overall in assists and sixth in points.

He has posted eight multi-point efforts, including a career-high, three-assist performance on November 23 vs. Portland, and recorded a season-high, four-game assist streak from February 4 at Hershey to February 11 at Manchester, tallying five assists over the span.

He registered an assist while making his AHL debut on November 2 at Bridgeport, and notched his first career AHL goal, a power play tally, on November 12 at St. John’s.

Erixon skated in 13 games over two stints with the Rangers earlier this season, having made his NHL debut on October 7 against Los Angeles as part of the 2011 NHL Premiere in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Port Chester, New York native was acquired by the Rangers from Calgary, along with a fifth round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft (Shane McColgan), in exchange for Roman Horak and two, second round picks in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft (Markus Granlund, Tyler Wotherspoon) on June 1, 2011.

He was originally selected by Calgary as a first round choice, 23rd overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
