* Rangers Assistant General Manager and VP of Player Personnel Don Maloney on Callahan's play ... "Ryan is a very good player at this level. He gets a lot of ice time, playing in all situations, while showing both smarts and patience with possession of the puck. He anticipates the play well and has the ability to make plays with the puck while in traffic. He scored a great goal in this game by sneaking beind the London defense and scoring top-shelf on a semi-breakaway."Petruzalek Named OHL Rookie of the Month for October
