Southern CT: Taking over hockey one player at a time

Change to come/Vazzano honored: Tuesday notes

on
Arthur Staple’s expecting a callup at forward after the Islanders placed both Kyle Okposo and Eric Boulton on injured reserve before Tuesday’s big home win over the Rangers. Mike Richards, 2005 Calder Cup champion, is now a Manchester Monarch. Congrats to Andrew MacDonald and Hali Sampson, newlyweds. Trumbull’s Alex Vazzano was Atlantic Hockey goalie of […] [Read More]

U-ti-ca: All-star notes/Lamoureux let go/notes

on
It became the highest-scoring all-star game in AHL history, a 14-12 win for the Western Conference, though remarkably it was 1-1 at 13:45 of the first. Aaron Ness was plus-2 twice; that evaporated in the West’s four-goal third period. He assisted on the first of Shane Prince’s three goals in the last 25 minutes. Only […] [Read More]

Lamoureux coming: Tuesday notes

on
For the moment Tuesday morning at Wonderland, the Sound Tigers looked more or less as expected: With Matt Lashoff out after taking a high hit Sunday, status quo ante on defense (Lashoff isn’t expected to play this week, Brent Thompson said); the second and third lines in another assorted combination. But there will be a […] [Read More]

Shots on goal, near goal, around goal: Providence pre/postgame

on
Those first 25 minutes, man. I know I didn’t tweet ‘em much (sigh), but what I got out, I guess, helped do them in. Game could’ve been over. It seemed Providence couldn’t cross the blue line in the first period. Bridgeport kept going the other way and not scoring. Or not getting a shot off. […] [Read More]

Stop that (and that) (and that): Wednesday notes

on
Fun little practice today, in which the lines and pairs were as they’ve been with the addition of one Matt Lashoff, paired with Loic Leduc. At the end they went to a drill, one net on each blue line, top three lines (including Sebastian Collberg, still in red, which Brent Thompson said surprised him a […] [Read More]

Unchanged (for now): Tuesday notes

on
Newbie Matt Lashoff (assigned No. 5, on the AHL site) wasn’t on the ice today at Wonderland, getting his medicals done as Brent Thompson said. So Bridgeport looked exactly the same as it did Saturday. Same lines. Same pairs. Loic Leduc a seventh defenseman. Justin Courtnall with Brett Gallant, Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan. Sebastian […] [Read More]

Got away late: Worcester postgame

on
In more ways than one, this game got away late from Bridgeport. Late in the game, three Worcester goals. Late in the first two periods, Worcester goals. “Sometimes you take one step back to take two forward,” Brent Thompson said. “It was one of those nights where we weren’t dialed in the way we needed […] [Read More]

Arcobello to Nashville

on
Mark Arcobello was traded tonight from Edmonton to Nashville, the teams announced. Arcobello, from Milford, played at Fairfield Prep and at Yale. The Oilers had been the only pro organization he’d known: He moved up from Stockton, then an Edmonton affiliate, to star at Oklahoma City. He played 78 games for Edmonton. Awful brain fart […] [Read More]

Persson in, Gillies out, two down: Monday notes

on
Haven’t had a chance to give a look to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton game yet. If I had, I might’ve noticed that Colton Gillies didn’t finish it. Gillies sat out of practice today, at the doctor to evaluate an upper-body injury, Brent Thompson said. Thompson termed him day-to-day. John Persson, on the other hand, appears at least […] [Read More]

Break notes

on
Been a little late acknowledging here that the break basically began somewhere between Norfolk and Bridgeport on Sunday morning. (Kevin Poulin got a bit of a Christmas bonus: The Big Club called him up for the night, saying Jaro Halak was getting a maintenance day.) There’s the interesting bit that the Sharks don’t buy the […] [Read More]
