Rangers Recall Foward Conner Brickley from the Wolfpack

The Rangers announced this morning that they have recalled forward Conner Brickley from the Hartford Wolfpack.

Brickley, a left-winger, was acquired in January from the Nashville Predators in exchange for Cole Schnider. Brickley, drafted 50 overall in 2010, has skated in 67 NHL games over the course of his career, registering 5 goals, 12 assists, and 20 penalty minutes for a total of twelve points. This season, Brickley has played in 52 AHL contests scoring 9 goals and adding 8 assists for a total of 17 points.

After sending Vinni Lettieri back down to the Wolfpack yesterday, the Rangers had 11 forwards on their roster, so it was clear that a subsequent roster move was going to be made.

Brickley is a native of Evertt Massachusetts, so it is likely that Rangers coach David Quinn is familiar with him from his days back with Boston University. Brickley is 6-foot, 203 pounds, and with Cody Mcleod gone, he will provide some physicality and hopefully, some offensive as well.
