Ullstrom to Russia

Jonkoping to Yaroslavl: After three years over here, David Ullstrom today signed with HK Lokomotiv in the KHL. He’d have had to clear waivers to return to Bridgeport, but he departs with spots in the Sound Tigers’ top 10 in goals, PPGs and game-winners (where, for a single season, his seven in 40 games in […] [Read More]

Deadline Day: Status Quo, until…

The lines and pairs looked identical to the way they finished last night for Bridgeport today, except for the big new defenseman wearing No. 19. Andrey Pedan — he said they went with “PAY-den” in Guelph, and he’s good with that, though he said it’s, if I got it right, more like “Puh-DAHN” back home. […] [Read More]

Manchester Liveblog ’13-2

Liveblogging off the radio again. We’ll have Ken Cail up and will follow Jamie and the Monarchs’ feeds on Twitter. The box will be here: Jamie Koharski and Tim Mayer. Got to watch a little of the Islanders last night thanks to rare television arrangements, but didn’t like seeing David Ullstrom go off in massive […] [Read More]

‘Pretty average’ day

David Ullstrom went back up to join the Big Club, leaving 11 healthy forwards here for this morning’s practice, the same who dressed last night. They expect to know more about John Persson (that lingering upper-body injury, hoping rest will help it) and Kirill Kabanov (sick but recovering) tomorrow, Scott Pellerin said, before Yet Another […] [Read More]

Needed victory

Curtis McElhinney kept making saves; one or two I’m not sure how he got ’em. The last one, no chance for him. David Ullstrom left wide open. Brock Nelson finds him. Ballgame. The penalty kill came up big in overtime; coupla JAM saves by Rick DiPietro after Bridgeport’s called for too many men (Pellerin credited […] [Read More]

Ullstrom’s back/Springfield pregame

At least some of the brass is expected tonight. Appears the Islanders will have a roster spot open even with the impending return of Jesse Joensuu, as they’ve announced Michael Grabner will miss at least a week with a shoulder injury. The spot’s open because they sent David Ullstrom down yesterday. He’ll return to Bridgeport […] [Read More]

Ullstrom returns

Late in today’s practice (which was a smidgen later than usual anyway) came word that the Islanders had sent David Ullstrom down to the Sound Tigers. That’ll lengthen the lineup a little. Ullstrom didn’t have a point in his last 12 NHL games after a 2-3-5 start in seven. He hadn’t played more than 10 […] [Read More]

Going up

Appears that Bridgeport loses Hamonic, Wishart, Landry, Ullstrom, Cizikas, McDonald. I don’t know if that’s it, if that’s it for now, or what. But that’s what it appears at the moment. More later. ….. To answer your first question: No Niederreiter, no Ness, no Donovan, to my knowledge at this point. To answer your second […] [Read More]
