Defense deeper, more familiar

The only apparent late addition to the Sound Tigers’ training-camp roster is one of the only two familiar faces: Brett Motherwell. Awaiting firm word on whether it’s an AHL deal or a tryout. Bridgeport announced Monday morning that it’s an AHL contract.

Also of note: The split-squad preseason games have a trickle-down effect not only on the Sound Tigers’ playing roster, but on the coaching staff, too. Jack Capuano will remain with the Big Club for the time being, and Matt Bertani will be joining him. Pat Bingham will be running camp. Kalamazoo coach Nick Bootland* and Odessa coach Paul Gillis are in town and will be helping out.

*-Darryl’s doing well and will be playing in, of all places, Odessa this year.
