Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio recaps the Sound Tigers 3-2 loss at Binghampton which is their fourth in a row with comments on Kyle Okposo's debut.

"Obviously, very skilled," Binghamton coach Cory Clouston said. "He's an elite player. We were more focused on our guys, but you can tell he's going to be a very good hockey player." Okposo kept things simple, avoiding mistakes, which is what coach Jack Capuano said he stressed.

"I went out there and played my game," Okposo said. "I tried to limit my mistakes."

"He's playing with Jeff and Fransie, it's his first game: He'll try to dish the puck a little bit," Capuano said. "He'll learn as he goes. You don't get many chances in this league or in the NHL. When you get a chance, you've got to make the best of it."

NY Times: Dave Caldwell travelled to Bridgeport to get comments from Kyle Okposo, had telephone interviews with his father, Kome and Garth Snow. Jack Capuano is also quoted.

Okposo’s father, Kome, said Thursday that his son was not unhappy at Minnesota. Kyle Okposo said he had a good relationship with Lucia and his assistants, “and I’ll leave it at that.”

“He’s a very humble guy,” Bridgeport Coach Jack Capuano said of Okposo. “He’s mature, and he comes from a good family. He’s a good guy — a captain-like guy. He’s a leader. We know he’s a high-profile guy, but he knows he’s going to have to work hard.”
