Bridgeport Sound Tigers 2012 Training Camp
Full Speed Ahead

Despite leading the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in goals last year, David Ullstrom cannot afford to rest on his laurels. His 24 tallies in 2011-12 turned heads around the AHL, and he challenged for the league lead for much of the season.

Ullstrom’s goal totals are especially remarkable when you consider he played 29 games in the NHL with the Islanders. The Jonkoping, SWE native was with the parent club down the stretch last season, scoring four goals and four assists. Now he finds himself in Sound Tigers Training Camp with the task of proving that he's an elite scorer once again, this time to Head Coach Scott Pellerin and the rest of the coaching staff.

“He’s one of the guys who has impressed me the most,” Pellerin said. “He’s really brought his conditioning to another level and handled his offseason training like a true professional. His skating tests as well as his off-ice testing were off the charts. You can really see the commitment level.”

Perhaps it was the work ethic nearly every pro athlete has to have to make it to the top, and maybe it was the taste of the NHL that fueled Ullstrom to take his conditioning to another level this summer. Whether it’s in the NHL or AHL, the third-year pro has clear goals in mind.
