Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld today announced that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned goaltender Brandon Halverson to the Wolf Pack from its ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, and that fellow netminder Mackenzie Skapski has been reassigned from the Wolf Pack to the Swamp Rabbits.
Halverson, a 20-year-old rookie out of the Ontario Hockey League, is 3-1-0 in his first four pro appearances for Greenville, with a 1.70 goals-against average, which currently ranks fifth in the ECHL, a 94.3% save percentage and one shutout. Last year with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, the 6-4, 208-pound Halverson was 20-17-4 with a 3.00 GAA and a 90.7% save percentage.
A native of Traverse City, MI, Halverson was the Rangers’ top pick in the 2014 NHL draft, selected in the second round, 59th overall. In 112 career OHL games over three seasons with the Greyhounds, he compiled a record of 72-28-7, along with a 2.83 GAA, a 90.9% save percentage and eight shutouts.
Skapski has seen action in five Wolf Pack games this season, going 0-4-0 with a 5.17 GAA and an 84.8% save percentage.
