A start

on
BRIDGEPORT F: Ullstrom-Persson-McDonald Kabanov-Nelson-Niederreiter Halmo-Sundstrom-Backman DeFazio-Watkins-Riley Gallant/MacKay D: de Haan-Wishart Donovan-Hamonic Ness-Landry Cantin-McIver G: Poulin Nilsson Reiter Mildly familiar, at least, in a couple of places. Cizikas was out with what was said to be a minor groin issue. Jason Clark was off skates for undisclosed reasons. To me the most interesting thing of all […] [Read More]

The Sound Tigers’ first full practice will be open to the public Saturday, at Iceworks in Syosset, N.Y., 10-11:30. The camp roster includes sweater numbers and no tryouts.

Campin’ elsewhere

on
Burning off a bunch of time off before camp starts…. not that it’ll be all that convenient once it begins. For the most part, camp is planned to be on the Island (at Syosset) start-to-finish, except for that swing up I-290 for the two exhibition games. We’ll try to pick it up when we can. […] [Read More]

Partial bailout

on
The main site has had some troubles for Internet Explorer users, so I’ll probably drop a copy of posts at the lifeboat until the issue resolves. Just housekeeping. I’ll ask that, if you have a comment, you go to the main site to leave it (comments seem to work reasonably well, if not perfectly). Thanks […] [Read More]

Preseason roadie

on
The Sound Tigers wouldn’t have played exhibition games again this year if not for the lockout. But with that reality up top, they’ve announced two preseason games, both on the road. They’ll face Providence on Thursday, Oct. 4, at New England Sports Center in Marlboro(ugh), Mass., at 7:05. (The NESC just about overlooks the junction […] [Read More]

Berkshire League, Unlocked

on
Sunday edit: Got a few minutes with Travis Hamonic today: story here with a bit of a more general-audience BST lockout primer. So the league and the players association didn’t come up with a new CBA. Contain your shock, please. While we wait until January, we’ll find other things to do. I think my two […] [Read More]

Last five clear

on
Appears not one person was yanked off waivers this week. Probably good for the majority of them, as at least they’ll be paid in the AHL and will likely have a chance to compete for an NHL spot… whenever there’s an NHL again. The Islanders sent Sean Backman, Ty Wishart and newcomers Colin McDonald, Nathan […] [Read More]

Hamonic among those sent down

on
Hadn’t thought the Islanders would have Travis Hamonic come here during a lockout, but apparently he’s coming. The Islanders sent down 19 players today, with Hamonic the only real surprise in the bunch. That doesn’t include the five guys who’ll need waivers. Edit: per Bob McKenzie this afternoon, those five are indeed on today. G–Anders […] [Read More]
