Colliton

Belated tip of cap, JC: Monday notes

on
I don’t know how I missed this, but Jeremy Colliton announced his retirement earlier this month in Sweden. Concussions. Brutal. (In talking with someone about the Dane Byers hit on Aaron Ness a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned it being about 100 feet (I was off by 30-40) from where Colliton took that hit […] [Read More]

Colliton waiting

on
There’s very good news from Jeremy Colliton: He became Dad to a baby boy this week, he said in a couple of traded text messages. But on the other side, “I’m still not healthy,” Colliton wrote, “so my focus is on getting better. Once that’s in place, I can begin to make a plan for […] [Read More]

Hitting hard

on
You could probably have written something like the script to this one before the game, though you might’ve taken a Providence power-play goal or two away for realism’s sake. Depleted lineup. Depleted goaltending. Three-in-three for Providence after a Bridgeport day off. This is a game the Sound Tigers are supposed to win in fashion like […] [Read More]

Things add up

on
It didn’t look like their night for a while. Chances weren’t going. Anton Khudobin was making saves. The Bruins built themselves a lead. It wasn’t big enough. No Cizikas, no Ullstrom, no great shakes for once from the goaltending: No biggie. Blair Riley takes a cross-check and takes offense. “He’s been great for us from […] [Read More]

Streaking

on
When they were surrendering odd-man rushes every few minutes early in the season, this probably would’ve been one of those games you circle dread. And sure, Norfolk has been on the road forever, and played last night while the Sound Tigers chilled out at home (or at Ingalls) (or wherever). But the Admirals are still […] [Read More]

Turnaround win, Volume… how many?

on
So that’s two goals in four games deflecting home off defensemen. Two goals for Tomas Marcinko in four games. A goal and an assist for Brett Gallant in three games. A goal and two assists for Chris Langkow in four games. A night when it took a while to get things going, and the fourth […] [Read More]

Captain closer: Wednesday notes

on
It looks good for Jeremy Colliton to play this weekend, and today’s practice lines included him in the top nine, on the right. Colliton was with Tyler McNeely and David Ullstrom on right wing, which slid Tim Wallace to the side of Micheal Haley and Trevor Frischmon. The Cizikas line stayed intact. “(Colliton) brings veteran […] [Read More]

Captain Colliton

on
Reminder: Live chat tomorrow, 1:30. The seventh captain of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers is Jeremy Colliton. Another choice would have been quite a surprise. “It’s a very big honor,” Colliton said, noting as well that it’s an honor to follow Mark Wotton, captain for five seasons, into that letter. “I’ve been here a while, so […] [Read More]

Not yet

on
Thanks to a series of unrelated craziness, I was here way early, which meant I was here when Jeremy Colliton took his first twirl in some time. He went through a couple of light skating drills with Matt Bertani (though Justin DiBenedetto, coming out for power-play practice as Colliton finished, demanded that Bertani bag-skate him). […] [Read More]

Campin’ road trip

on
Cough mostly suppressed and pee wee projects done, sneaked down to the Island this morning, mostly to put together some kinda advance for Saturday (well, Saturday’s game, Friday’s paper); also collected stuff for a future story. A thought or two: –As noted by several, including this Katie Strang tweet, there’s some buzz around Aaron Ness’ […] [Read More]
