Erixon Has Good Hockey Sense

erixonnyrMike G. Morreale at NHL.com was able to speak with Rangers prospect defenseman Tim Erixon about Traverse City, being traded to the Rangers and much more.

Here’s Erixon evaluating his game…

“I feel that I’ve proven I’m getting stronger and faster and stuff like that,” he said. “I feel good and confident. I’m able to read the play really well and have good hockey sense and I know that’s important at this level. I think I play well in my own end. I don’t play that physical, but if I get a chance to hit, I’ll do it. But I don’t screw around chasing hits.”

CT Whale assistant coach J.J. Daigneault has been impressed with Erixon’s play during the Traverse tournament…

“I really like the overall package he brings to the table and the skill set,” Daigneault said. “He’s one of our top defensemen, if not the top defenseman, at this tournament. He’s been controlling the power play and playing some penalty kill, as well. I think the future is very bright for him and the organization.”

…after watching Erixon this week there is no doubt that he will be pushing real hard for a roster spot in camp. I’d almost be shocked at this point if he doesn’t make the team.

Meanwhile, fellow prospect Christian Thomas is excited about today’s Traverse game vs. the Hurricanes…
