Bridgeport Sound Tigers 2012 Training Camp
Making The Jump

Two years ago, Mike Halmo wasn’t on most NHL teams’ radars, going undrafted after a pair of pedestrian junior hockey campaigns. Today, the late-bloomer is carving out a home in the Islanders organization following a breakout junior season with the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League that saw him post 40 goals, 45 assists and 162 penalty minutes in 66 games.

“I think it just took me awhile to understand the game a bit more,” Halmo said. “Each year I just kept getting more and more time to play and during my overage year I got the chance to play in every situation and really put points up.”

In his first two seasons with Owen Sound, the Waterloo, ON native totaled 16 goals and 21 assists in 122 games. Following his uneventful draft year, Halmo erupted for 128 points (60 goals, 68 assists) in 125 contests over his final two junior seasons.
