In addition to Adam Phillips (listed as a forward) and Mike Pereira, previously noted, Bridgeport announced AHL deals for Philippe Trudeau, who was here on an amateur tryout this past spring; Peter Sivak, a veteran Czech forward who’s played his first two seasons in North America the past two years; former Maine defenseman Mark Nemec, […] [Read More]

What’s on sale: Tuesday notes

on
The sale of the Islanders doesn’t sound as if it includes Harbor Yard Sports and Entertainment at the moment. That’s what we heard from Bridgeport, most directly from Howard Saffan. He’s impressed with both new owners. They’ll take their two years and see how everything goes. As of now, Saffan said, HYS&E isn’t involved. Two […] [Read More]

The Big Club has new ownership, pending approvals: Arthur Staple broke and the team announced soon after that Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin will buy a “substantial minority interest” in the team and become majority owners in two years. Charles Wang remains in charge in the meantime. [Read More]

Catching up: vacations, schedules, notes

on
Through all of this stuff the past few weeks, no one relegated Bridgeport to the Central League? You’re slipping, Internet. Even if you’ve been to the National Air and Space Museum on the Mall in Washington, seriously, get yourself out to Dulles and see the relatively new Udvar-Hazy Center.

Exhibit A: a purchase agreement that appears to include the Sound Tigers […] [Read More]

Spam and spy cameras

on
Edit: Joe Finley has signed with Hamilton, the Bulldogs announced. New spam filter catches comments (sorry, Raul, only five days later) but lets through spam “from” that TV “doctor,” or pitching wristwatches, or… technology, baby. As soon as you get it to work the way you want it, someone will “upgrade” you. Anyway, since the […] [Read More]

Pereira to Bridgeport II

on
Like his brother, Joe, Mike Pereira made his pro debut with the Worcester Sharks. Unlike Joe, Mike didn’t join the Sound Tigers immediately after that. But he’s joined them soon enough: had confirmed that he’s signing an AHL contract with Bridgeport for next year, as Chip Malafronte first reported. Pereira debuted in Bridgeport, actually, with […] [Read More]

Add UMass’ Phillips

on
Got confirmation that Adam Phillips, at 6-foot-6 out of Michigan via UMass, has signed a two-way AHL contract with Bridgeport. He had six goals and nine assists last year for the Minutemen in 34 games. Started out as a defenseman but appears to have played more forward the past couple of years, and he went […] [Read More]
