Six AHL contracts

In addition to Adam Phillips (listed as a forward) and Mike Pereira, previously noted, Bridgeport announced AHL deals for Philippe Trudeau, who was here on an amateur tryout this past spring; Peter Sivak, a veteran Czech forward who’s played his first two seasons in North America the past two years; former Maine defenseman Mark Nemec, continuing the upward trend of right-handed defensemen; and most interestingly, Keith Seabrook, who’s been out of hockey since November 2012 (also righty).

Depth, some experience, and hey, some stories for us in camp or beyond.

All AHL two-ways; Nemec’s ECHL rights, the release notes, belong to Colorado, so he’d go there if sent down.

Seabrook (younger brother of the Blackhawks’ Brent) has sort of a Bridgeport claim to fame: His two games in town were with Abbotsford in February 2010. He scored a game-winning power-play goal in the third period of both of them. Streak on the line.


Meanwhile, the Central League has lost both Denver and Arizona this week and is down to seven teams at the moment. Hoping good news comes quickly for those put out of work, including Sundogs coach Kevin Colley.
