New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Dylan McIlrath from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
McIlrath, 21, has registered three goals and four assists for seven points, along with 115 penalty minutes in 24 games with Hartford this season. His three goals mark a career-high, while he established a career-high in points with his sixth of the season, an assist, on November 16 at Bridgeport. McIlrath currently leads the AHL in penalty minutes, is tied for third in the league with nine fighting majors, and is tied for second among Wolf Pack defensemen in goals. He notched a goal in consecutive games on October 6 against Albany and October 11 against Adirondack, including his first professional goal on October 6.
The Winnipeg, Manitoba native was originally selected as the Rangers' first round choice, 10th overall, in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
