Bridgeport Sound Tigers 2012 Training Camp
New Faces Looking to Make Impact in Sound Tigers Camp

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers opened their 2012 Training Camp on Friday morning at Islanders Iceworks in Syosset. Players gathered for the first time as a unit, taking medical exams and shaking hands with new teammates. First-year Head Coach Scott Pellerin the reigns of a team that won the Northeast Division in 2011-12, and is equipped with enough talent to repeat.

The 2012-13 version will feature many carryovers from last season’s team, but also plenty of new faces. For Brock Nelson, Kirill Kabanov, Johan Sundstrom and five other rookies, their North American professional hockey careers begin with this year’s Sound Tigers Training Camp.

This year marks Nelson’s first professional camp after playing the last two seasons at the University of North Dakota. Nelson appeared in six regular season and playoff games for the Sound Tigers last spring after concluding his collegiate season. That experience should benefit him as he tries to make an impact in his first year in the AHL.

“It was good to get out there and get a taste for the pro game, get used to the pace and meet some of the guys,” Nelson said. “Now I want to prove that I had a good summer and develop as a player mentally, physically and work on all aspects of my game.”
