HARTFORD, CT - Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that goaltender Jason Missiaen has been reassigned to the Whale from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors, and that fellow netminder Bryan Hince has been released from his Professional Tryout (PTO) agreement and returned to Greenville.

Prior to being assigned to the Road Warriors December 12, Missiaen played in seven games for the Whale this season and compiled a record of 2-3-0, with a 4.94 goals-against average and an 85.0% save percentage. In five ECHL games with Greenville, the 6-8, 220-pound second-year pro went 4-1-0 with a 2.75 GAA and a 92.2% save percentage. Missiaen was a free-agent signee by the parent New York Rangers March 24, 2011 out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Hince served as the Whale’s backup goaltender for the last five games after signing his PTO December 12. The third-year pro out of SUNY-Plattsburgh has played three games for the Road Warriors this year, going 1-2-0 with ten goals-against on 113 shots, for a 3.36 goals-against average and a 91.2% save percentage. That included Hince’s first professional shutout, which came in his Road Warrior season debut, a 3-0 win at Trenton November 24 in which he made 30 saves

The Whale return to action tonight, starting a home-and-home set against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers with a 7:00 PM game at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport (“Beethoven Radio” AM 1290, www.ctwhale.com, video streaming at www.ahllive.com). The same two teams then hook up again tomorrow night, Thursday, at the XL Center, with faceoff again at 7:00.
