Whale Add Carroll

The Whale did indeed add to their forward ranks earlier today, agreeing on a Professional Tryout (PTO) deal with Andrew Carroll, who was playing in the ECHL with the Idaho Steelheads, after spending all of last season in the AHL with Hershey.

In joining the Whale, Carroll comes full circle back to where his AHL career got its start, which was with four games in a Wolf Pack uniform in 2009-10.  Since then, the Shoreview, MN native and former University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldog has played in 120 more AHL contests, 93 of them with the Bears.  He has also totaled 115 ECHL games in three-plus years, and has been a good offensive force at that level, scoring 52 goals and racking up 93 points.  This year with Idaho Carroll had a 12-19-31 stat line in 36 games and had been hot lately, with goals in three straight games (3-0-3) and points in six straight (3-3-6) and 11 of his last 12 (4-8-12).

Carroll has been more of a physical grinder at the AHL level, with 14 points and 210 PIM in his 124 career AHL appearances.

The addition of Carroll gives the Whale 12 healthy forwards on their roster, and, happily, the news out of New York on Ryan Callahan is not too bad.  After Callahan underwent an MRI on his injured left shoulder today, the Rangers announced that the captain was expected to be out of action for 10-14 days.
