Bridgeport Sound Tigers 2012 Training Camp

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers wrapped up Training Camp at Iceworks on Thursday, focusing on special teams before making the trip to Connecticut for the start of the regular season. The Sound Tigers open 2012-13 in Hartford against the rival Connecticut Whale on Friday, Oct. 12, before coming home to face the Providence Bruins the following night.

Friday’s game is the first of 10 against the in-state rival. Last season, the Sound Tigers won 6-of-10 regular season matchups against Connecticut, but bowed out to their foes in the first round of the playoffs, something that defenseman Aaron Ness hasn’t forgotten about.

“There’s some history there, especially after last year,” Ness said. “It’s obviously fresh in our minds, so it should be a good test for us right away.”

Head Coach Scott Pellerin believes that Friday’s combination of Opening Night and the rivalry is the best way for players to get past their early jitters.

“I think everybody’s going to be ramped up and the energy level is going to be high,” Pellerin said. “I think it’s going to be a great way to start and set a mark on our season and challenge ourselves as a team.”

The first-year head coach has had just two weeks and two exhibition games since the beginning of Training Camp to implement his system and get the team up to speed. After those two weeks of evaluation, he is excited about this year’s squad.
