It's been a busy past few days for Brandon Mashinter. He just played three games in three nights, helping the Connecticut Whale win all three, and then just when he finally went to relax last night he received a phone call telling him he was being called up to the NHL with the Rangers.

So it was a tired, yet excited, Brandon Mashinter who chatted with BlueshirtsUnited.com's Jim Cerny Monday afternoon at the MSG Training Center after his first full practice with the club. Mashinter discussed a variety of topics, including his welcome to the NHL moments with the San Jose Sharks a couple of years ago, in this exclusive interview.
