Immonen, Pock back with Pack

Hartford Wolf Pack general manager/head coach Jim Schoenfeld announced on Monday that the New York Rangers have returned center Jarkko Immonen and defenseman Thomas Pock to the Wolf Pack.

Immonen, 24, made his NHL debut when he was recalled by the Rangers on Apr. 6. In six games with New York, Immonen netted two goals for two points. In 74 regular-season games with the Wolf Pack, he had 30 goals and 40 assists for 70 points.

Immonen, a native of Rantasalmi, Finland, was acquired from Toronto as part of the Mar. 3, 2004, trade involving Brian Leetch. Earlier this season, Immonen set a Hartford franchise record with five goals in one game, accomplishing the feat on Feb. 4 at Portland in a 6-0 Wolf Pack win.

Pock, 24, skated in 67 games with Hartford during the regular season, tallying 15 goals and 46 assists for 61 points, along with 99 penalty minutes. His 61 points ranked first among defensemen on the Wolf Pack, and third among defensemen in the AHL during the regular season.

Pock represented the Wolf Pack at the 2006 Rbk Hockey AHL All-Star Classic, and was named a Second Team AHL All-Star for 2005-06.

Hartford returns to action on Tuesday night when Portland visits for Game 1 of the Atlantic Division Finals.
