Pedan to Stockton, attrition: Thursday notes

on
He wasn’t cracking the top six here with the present cast, so Andrey Pedan got a seat on a plane… though not the best seat. He’ll join Stockton for the Thunder’s two games in Idaho this weekend. Brent Thompson said he’ll be back, but he’s got to play, and with eight defensemen, he wasn’t expected […] [Read More]

Morals to the story: Hershey postgame

on
Granted, there are no moral victories at this level, but that may’ve been among the more inspirational 5-4 losses around here. Team ATO down 3-0 to the Hershey Bears. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than two against anyone but Adirondack since February. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than one against a team still alive in the playoff […] [Read More]

Ups, downs, across (CAN-USA Fri.): Wednesday notes (updated)

on
Edit2: ECHL transactions report says Andrey Pedan is coming back up from Stockton. So make it eight again. Edit: Bridgeport sent Mike Cornell down to Florida (ECHL) this afternoon. Presumably a further casualty of the numbers (see below), though interesting as one of the only two righty shots left (if you count Scooter Vaughan as […] [Read More]

Friday notes: Finley on the way

on
Everybody who’d been here before the break apparently made it back travel-wise; some had dicey connections, but they made it. The only absence noted: Justin Johnson, who’ll be out about 10 days, lower-body, said Scott Pellerin. There’s another player expected tomorrow, though, who would’ve been in today if not for the weather: Joe Finley, out […] [Read More]

No milestone: Albany postgame

Pedan to Stockton

on
Andrey Pedan is cleared to play. He’ll do enough of that the next week with Stockton: The Islanders have reassigned him to the Thunder. The ECHL’s revamped schedule after the demise of the San Francisco Bulls keeps the Thunder in Alaska for the next week; they play the Aces Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. […] [Read More]

Skate a little: Tuesday notes (with edit)

on
Gimme of the week: After being off for the Super Bowl on Sunday and again on Monday, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers skated. And skated. And skated some more. They’d gone through a practice already, which included three people who weren’t included on Saturday, to differing degrees of involvement. Ryan Strome, feeling OK, took practice in […] [Read More]

Close if not imminent: Tuesday notes

on
So Matt Donovan was here for “an 18-minute warmup,” Scott Pellerin said; the Islanders called him back up this morning, placing Travis Hamonic on injured reserve. Arthur Staple reports as we’d figured yesterday that Donovan’s eligible for AHL time during the Olympic break after missing last night’s game. (Pretty much every time we’ve put together […] [Read More]

Beginning comebacks, birthday greetings: Thursday practice

on
Edit2: The AHL transactions quietly note AHL contracts for both Chris Langkow and Mike Cornell. Their PTOs were due to expire after tomorrow night’s game in Manchester. Great day today:)and it's not because of weather:) — Andrey Pedan (@AndreyPedan) January 9, 2014 Andrey Pedan, out about two months now with that persistent upper-body injury, skated […] [Read More]

Hartford pregame: Development

on
The lines look familiar (familiarish, at least); the defense as of this morning appeared to have a tweak, with Keenan in for Pedan. Doesn’t appear to have anything to do with what went on a couple of weeks ago: “It’s just part of the development process,” Scott Pellerin said. “He’s been working hard, watching video, […] [Read More]
