Squared away: Saturday notes

on
Notes from the stats update: Scooter Vaughan scored three short-handed goals, which led AHL rookies (as well as, um, defensemen, though that’s obviously bookkeeping; he was playing forward). Appears he’s the first Bridgeport rookie to score three short-handed goals. (Frans Nielsen did it in 2006-07, but he had too much European experience to be considered […] [Read More]

Vaughan re-ups: Thursday notes

on
Scooter Vaughan’s PTO was set to expire this weekend. Good news for him and the Sound Tigers: He’ll be here a lot longer than that. Vaughan signed an AHL deal for next season, earning his way to a contract with a solid second half of the year, moving from defense to forward, staying in the […] [Read More]

24 hours to go: Tuesday notes

on
After an offensively challenged couple of days, Bridgeport’s lines were tweaked when the Sound Tigers got back to work Tuesday. Andrew Clark was where Johan Sundstrom had been Sunday (presumably for the return of Mike Halmo, they wore Argentina/Columbia blue). Sundstrom was with John Persson and Matthew Pistilli. Alan Quine joined the otherwise-intact Mercier-Martin-Diamond trio. […] [Read More]

It’s kind of the story of the night: “We said let’s go and play in their end,” John Persson said. Backstory might be nice, I guess. There was a shift in the second period where Vaughan-Quine-Persson got pinned deep. Adirondack got some shots, kept it deep. Adirondack got a change, kept it deep. Adirondack forced […] [Read More]

Pedan to Stockton

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]

Moving the puck: Thursday notes

on
They worked a little on the power play Thursday morning at Wonderland. They tried some different ideas, Scott Pellerin said, a little trickier because Eric Boguniecki, who coaches the power play, had a family obligation this morning. But got to admit, it was a little cool to watch Ryan Strome work one side and Pierre-Marc […] [Read More]

On two-for-two swaps

on
On for practice today were two newbies, Scooter Vaughan (wearing No. 7 on the helmet) and Matt Lowry (stepping right into Nick Larson’s No. 17, it appeared). A chance to get a look at some new guys while the injured recover, Scott Pellerin said. The obvious question is, why not Larson and Mike Dalhuisen? Part […] [Read More]
