MacKinnon arrives: Tuesday notes

As Bill Ballou foretold, Bridgeport finally made it official and signed defenseman Ryan MacKinnon for the rest of the year and next season. MacKinnon was one of eight defensemen on the ice this morning at Wonderland; Parker Wotherspoon remained off skates, though Brent Thompson hoped he’d be back tomorrow if everything went well today. Scott Eansor remained out. No update yet on Stephen Gionta past “week to week.”

The lines were all mixed up; see if they stick tomorrow. One semi-familiar combo from Sunday was Michael Dal Colle with Travis St. Denis and Steve Bernier.

MacKinnon would be the fifth man to wear 49 for the Sound Tigers; the last was Sebastian Collberg. Possible he gets a crack this weekend, but to be determined yet.

One Atlantic Division team plays tonight, Wilkes-Barre, at Toronto.

And RIP, Greg Polis.
