Bridgeport/Prospect Notables

New York Islander Fan Central | 1/13/2013 07:57:00 AM |
1/13-Updated 6:20pm: Matt Donovan scored a pp goal in final two minutes for a 5-4 win. Bridgeport lost a 4-2 lead in last five minutes. Aaron Ness, Costello three point games. Niederreiter two goals.
Welcome to the American Hockey League, Scott Pellerin.

Today is the first true day as a head coach, with these things called transactions where the AHL affiliate lose players with alarming regularity for many reasons.

Kind of like how Bridgeport has been again struggling recently with games where they have had roster advantages, leads and still were outplayed/lost.

You fall behind 5-0 with roster advantages, come back to lose 5-4, then take a 2-0 lead in your next game with same advantages, your team should not surrender that lead, losing 6-3. 

Four regulation losses in the last five games.

Goodbye: Travis Hamonic, Ty Wishart, Jon Landry, Colin McDonald, Casey Cizikas and David Ullstrom, with more changes coming.

That's life in the AHL.

On Sunday, Bridgeport plays it's third game in three days, traveling from Providence to Bridgeport to Atlantic City (not Albany)  against the Devils 4pm.
Until the NHL or NHLPA release an official copy of it's CBA which will cover the 2013-14 season, not much to write on this subject.
It would appear the rules on college prospects, deadlines to sign CHL drafted players still apply at two years which mean decisions have to be made by June 1st under normal schedule circumstances.

Anders Lee is a junior, he is under no deadline to be signed until 8/15/2014 if he graduates. 

Mitchell Theoret was traded to the Barrie Colts on 1/10/13, per previous CBA he must be tendered a contract because he was drafted in 2011.
