AHL site: Two defensemen down

Nine defensemen is a lot, and it looks like Bridgeport got itself to seven: The AHL website’s transactions have Mike Dalhuisen and Mike Keenan going to Stockton.

Neither had played in the first four games here. The Thunder start for real Saturday at home, and though they have an early-season gap or two in their schedule like Bridgeport, they’ll play three games before Bridgeport plays two more, and they’ll play six before Bridgeport plays five.
