BST 25-man roster, ’cause it’s baseball playoff time

The only cuts today cleared out the only two tryouts on the Bridgeport roster, forwards Sean Wiles and Brayden Irwin. Wiles goes back to Reading; Irwin goes back to Stockton. Two big guys that earned their way out of the first week of camp, but got to think it’s a numbers game for guys on PTOs.

That leaves 14 forwards (manageable), nine defensemen (high) and two goalies (good number) to begin getting paid tomorrow. They’re all under contract (18 NHL, seven AHL).

Also, as I forgot to mention this morning after seeing the back of his helmet, Greg Miller is now in No. 14.

Captain Kostopoulos leads in the Penguins on Saturday. Meanwhile, veteran centerman Manny Malhotra signs a PTO with Charlotte.

Mimeographs made their appearance in the comments yesterday; they don’t appear here, but that was fun nevertheless. (Didn’t recognize No. 11. Have heard about but don’t recall seeing Nos. 4, 8 and 10. Still have Nos. 1 and 3.)
