Coast Report: Collberg, Nemec back

Sebastian Collberg returned to the Stockton lineup from his two-game injury absence with a goal. Mike Pereira scored the Thunder’s other goal, but Idaho beat the Thunder 3-2 as Jason Bast had a goal and an assist. Meanwhile Mark Nemec was noticeable: two goals, including the winner in OT, for Colorado. [Read More]

Checking Crabb for mumps: Thursday notes

Edit: Bridgeport sent Mark Nemec back to Colorado (ECHL) with Griffin Reinhart back. They’ve got seven defensemen again with Scooter Vaughan available to move back if necessary. The plan Wednesday was to write about the mumps, what precautions Bridgeport was taking. Arrived to find out they were getting their shots. Perfect. Played right into it. […] [Read More]

Reinhart back, Halmo out: Wednesday notes

The New York Islanders’ reassignment of Griffin Reinhart back to Bridgeport — the Big Club has two spots open now after putting Michael Grabner back on IR, and Travis Hamonic and Johnny Boychuk both practiced today — came while the Sound Tigers were on the ice Wednesday. So, things there looked pretty much as they […] [Read More]

Rearrangement pre-Norfolk: Monday notes

The past two games, C.J. Stretch had sat late after penalties. His spot on that line was occupied by Alan Quine this morning, between Cory Conacher and Harry Zolnierczyk (Mike Halmo: upper body, day-to-day*). Peter Sivak was up with Kael Mouillierat and Colin McDonald. “It’s a discipline issue,” Brent Thompson said after he’d skated the […] [Read More]

No need to yell: Hartford postgame

There’s no reason, Scooter Vaughan said, that this team should be forcing the coaches to blister the paint between periods, to get the blood pressure up. They know what they’ve got to do. They’ve got to do it. “The game’s played with passion, emotion, heart,” Brent Thompson said. “We have to harness that. … We […] [Read More]

Conacher in, Halmo out: Hartford pregame

No Mike Halmo today — reportedly injured in Friday night’s loss in Wilkes-Barre; hoping for more after the game — so Cory Conacher makes his Bridgeport debut in Halmo’s spot (well, on the right side, from the rushes) with C.J. Stretch and Harry Zolnierczyk. Otherwise similar, though it looks like Justin Courtnall slots back in […] [Read More]

Conacher to Sound Tigers

Cory Conacher cleared waivers at noon, and about a half-hour later the Islanders announced he was a Sound Tiger. All the stuff we talked about yesterday morning remain in effect: Talented player with a track record at this level. Onetime MVP, hadn’t been back to the AHL since midway through the next season. Lengthens the […] [Read More]
