Playoffs somewhere: Monday notes

on
Bridgeport treated today’s practice a little like a morning skate, Scott Pellerin said, complete with the forwards all wearing orange rather than different colors for different lines. That’s OK. A slew of Sound Tigers weren’t there anymore. Stockton should be loaded up next month. Bridgeport sent Matt Mangene, Jeremy Langlois and Riley Wetmore to the […] [Read More]

Frequent changes: Tuesday notes

on
So, the new-look Sound Tigers, three in and three out, skated at Wonderland this morning. Newbies Jesse Root, Yale’s captain (amateur tryout), and Adam Brace were alongside John Persson. Riley Wetmore was with Brett Gallant and Chris Bruton, who remained non-contact. Andrey Pedan went non-contact but left early, not feeling well, Scott Pellerin said. Matthew […] [Read More]

Diamond, Quine to Stockton/Wetmore, Brace up

on
Bridgeport has sent Joey Diamond and Alan Quine down to Stockton and called up Adam Brace, acquired about a month ago for Mike Dalhuisen, and Riley Wetmore. The timing seemed more curious to me than the move (though Diamond was in-and-out even now), but Scott Pellerin said there were other factors around the rest of […] [Read More]

Loans and assignments: Thursday notes

on
Between trades, loans and reassignments, it’s been a wacky week or so. The latest came this morning, when Riley Wetmore appeared on the AHL transactions; he skated this morning, then started out for Stockton.

A few getting closer: Tuesday notes

on
Riley Wetmore and John Persson both practiced today. Wetmore, a few weeks removed from getting skulled by a puck, said he felt pretty good at the end of it. “We’ll see their conditioning level, see if they’re available for the weekend. They’re not officially available,” Scott Pellerin said. “It depends how they do today, how […] [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]

Bring in the closers

on
They got a little bit from everyone, getting the rookie goal-scoring record from one guy, getting their standout young defenseman a share of the league lead, getting another strong comeback game from their goalie. But a couple of the kids had big nights tonight, too, one on the scoresheet, the other more subtly. Well, subtle […] [Read More]

Friday liveblog, several hours early (signings)

on
Bridgeport announced three signings this afternoon, so we’ll get the post started early and continue it later with game stuff. Under AHL contracts for next season: Mike Dalhuisen of Quinnipiac, discussed Tuesday; Riley Wetmore of UMass Lowell, former Scott Campbell teammate; and Cornell’s Greg Miller, whose Big Red bio says he’s the first three-time scoring […] [Read More]
