Not much of a youth movement, but he was brought up from the Whale.....

With winger Arron Asham suspended for the Rangers' regular-season opener, Brandon Segal has been called up from the Connecticut Whale and will be with the team Saturday in Boston.

Segal, 29, made his NHL debut with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2008-09 season, and has played in 102 NHL games the past five years, for three different teams, scoring 11 goals. Last season he appeared in 10 games for the Lightning.

Rangers coach John Tortorella said he saw Segal play with the Whale during the lockout.

"The thing that caught my eye was, he was really good on the wall," Tortorella said. "He stepped in and fought a guy in a situation during a game where there was no hesitation. He’s been a good player for them. [Asham] is out because of his suspension, and this guy deserves a chance. So we’re hoping that it’s not just one and done -- we hope he’s part of our depth, and we’ll see where it goes."

Who knows? Maybe this guy will end up being a better option than Asham.

Of the 18 skaters slated to be on the ice saturday, 12 are 28 or younger, 6 are 29 or older. Just saying, he doesn't really qualify as bringing up youth from Ct.

That will not hurt my feelings for a washed up fish. Cheers
