I dont know about that. They can`t find a place for Omark,and even Paajarvi is in the minors now. They are stacked with young talented forwards.

Was at the B-Sens/Whale game tonight. The Whale really didn't show up until the 3rd period, as the shots were 34-17 in favor of the B-Sens after 2 periods. The Whale tallied 22 shots in the 3rd and allowed 6, but couldn't score on Mike McKenna to even the score at 2, and gave up an empty=netter in the final minute to lose 3-1.

Erixon, Redden, Zuccarello, and Kolarik were all out for the Whale. Avery did not skate in warmups, but played, which was unfortunate, as he took an incredibly selfish penalty (and took another one five minutes later), giving Corey Locke, the best PP QB in the AHL, a chance to set up the tying goal on a pretty play. The B-Sens took the momentum, and then scored the go-ahead goal.

Looks like he played today. Had 2 assists

Can anyone who's watched him play give us an overview? 18 points in 18 games for a d-man is pretty freaking impressive

Especially for a two-way defenseman ... who is a 20 year rookie.

I expect Erixon to be a full time Ranger next yr. Team is doing the right thing by not rushing him. Sure hope he can play RD.

McIlrath should get the same treatment and have a full yr in the minors with some call ups.

If they dont move a young Dman next yr should be Staal, Girardi ,McDonaugh , Sauer, Del Zotto, Erixon with RFA Stralman likely qualified as the 7th D or Eminger brought back on the cheap

Given that Erixon plays the right side on the powerplay (or at least did in Sweden), it shouldn't be that much of a stretch to think he's capable of playing that side.

Yep. To have a forward put up a point per game at 20 is pretty impressive, let alone a d-man. And Hagelin and Zuccarello haven't even been in the line up

For comparison, almighty Bobby Sanguinetti has 11 points in 24 games and he's almost 24 years old already

Timmy Erixon from last night



1:56

Erixon walks the blueline on a 5 on 3. He doesn't get that much time in the NHL

2:19

Erixon makes a nice pass to Newbury

Another loss to Springfield. Didn't generate many offensive chances and gave up a lot of opportunities. Not a good formula. Talbot was good.

Erixon looked alright, but he will definitely benefit from a full season in the AHL. He gets beat to some pucks he shouldn't be beaten to and could play a little sharper. Still, all the talent appears to be there, and he's all over the puck when they're on the powerplay. He gets some time on the penalty kill as well, which is great experience.

Another point for Erixon, so it's now 19 points in 19 games. The report above confirms what I saw and wrote about before: he doesn't look that great and you think that his point in the game you saw may be a fluke, but he just keeps raking them up.


Two more points for JAM, who now has 35 points in 37 games. As I've written before, when you see high AHL scorers who fail to make the NHL, it is VERY rare for them to be high scorers at the age of 20. Normally, it's guys who scored a lot in juniors, then started slowly in the AHL, took a couple of years to establish themselves as decent AHLer, then a couple more years as AHL stars, and by the time they are high scorers in the AHL, they are in their mid-20s. This is the story of PAP, and many others.

It's different when you have a guy who comes into the AHL and immediately becomes a high-scoring All Star. By the time PAP became a point-per-game scorer at the AHL level, he was so old that he wasn't going to improve very much.

When JAM is a ppg player right now, he's still a 20-year-old rookie who has another 4-5 years of improvement to go.

JAM doesn't need to learn to score against professionals. He needs to bulk up a little, sharpen his overall game, learn some tricks of pro hockey. All of these are easily teachable with time. Guys like PAP could score only after doing all of the above. JAM does it despite lacking any pro experience.

Would never. I never could understand why the website would only list the home games. Not sure if it's still the game. Dumb.

Really not sure what his timetable is right now. The team is so sparsely covered in the media that these questions aren't asked to the people who actually know the answers.
