Roster News: Dale Weise Recalled Following Erik Christensen Injury

During the second period of tonight's game Rangers forward Erik Christensen went crashing into the goal post and immediately grabbed for his knee.  He would not return for the rest of the game with what was described as a lower leg injury, but it was clear it was his knee, though no word on the severity at this point.  With the injury to Christensen, per Mitch Beck at HowlingsToday the team recalled Dale Weise from Connecticut which I think would have happened soon even without an injury thanks to the moving of Todd White to the Whale earlier today.  Weise showed himself well in his only game against the Flyers and will be a solid energy player on the fourth line if Christensen is out for any length of time, but once again there will be more line juggling.
