“Where’s my spy camera? Where’s my spy camera?”*

on
The schedule question always comes. And though the schedule doesn’t sound imminent, the question always comes harder once the basketballers put theirs out. So after 11 years, I figured it was worth doing this. Schedule releases: Year AHL NBA  2001-02  Aug. 2 July 26  2002-03 Aug. 1 July 18  2003-04 July 31 July 29  2004-05 […] [Read More]

“Vacation” is an NCAA term

Back from a few days off. They technically began last Monday night. Yeah. Anyway. Kenny Reiter’s official. Greg Mauldin to Switzerland. Keith Aucoin to Toronto. Jared Bednar winds up an assistant with Springfield. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Mark Katic. I kept telling my Dad that “‘Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott” was in the hunt […] [Read More]

Another (familiar) goalie, etc.

on
I’m probably the last to point out a report from Pittsburgh that Kenny Reiter is signing an AHL two-way with the Sound Tigers. Adds depth in net; had a very nice college career and made his pro debut in that penultimate game at Wilkes-Barre in April, making 26 saves on 29 shots. Here’s our Scott […] [Read More]

Pellerin in, Wishart back

on
Two news items today: Indeed it’s Scott Pellerin as the Sound Tigers’ eighth head coach; and Ty Wishart re-upped, a one-year, two-way deal. I’m in a bit of an Internet mess among other things, so please forgive the lack of links to further. But anyway, here’s further. Stuff that won’t make the Pellerin story: –Was […] [Read More]

Pellerin on his way?/Clark signs

on
Think Brian Compton had this name out there first as a man in the mix: It appears the eighth coach of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers is going to be Scott Pellerin. A teammate of Garth Snow’s at Maine (he missed Jack Capuano by a year), Pellerin, 42, has been an assistant with Manchester since 2006. […] [Read More]

Backman was 7-11-18 for Bridgeport in 66 games this year and became a key piece of the penalty kill as the year went on. The Islanders announced earlier that Ty Wishart and Matt Martin didn’t accept their qualifying offers, […] [Read More]
