Blackburn Returns From AHL Conditioning Stint

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers


Rookie netminder Dan Blackburn returned from his conditioning stint with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) yesterday in time for the Rangers' practice in Rye, New York. Blackburn posted a 2-1-1 mark with the Pack, along with a 2.72 goals against average in four starts.

"I think everything went pretty well," said Blackburn yesterday following the skate. "I feel I kind of built on things and got better. The first couple of games I was a little tentative, but got more comfortable as I went along."

Johan Holmqvist, who was recalled during Blackburn's stint with the Wolf Pack, was reassigned to Hartford.
