Life is a great big bang-up: Tuesday notes

Jesse Graham, not tendered a qualifying offer by the Islanders a month ago, is now a Colorado Avalanche defenseman. Got a raise, even. Graham bounced up and down to the Coast in his three Bridgeport seasons, and hopefully he can establish himself out there.

Upstate notes: Quinnipiac’s Jordan Samuels-Thomas re-signed with San Diego. Enfield’s Robbie Baillargeon, an Ottawa draft pick before bouncing from BU to Arizona State, signed an ECHL contract with South Carolina.

A few former Sound Tigers will play for Canada in a couple of international tournaments.

And… holy cro, Anders. Action is his reward.
