SOUND TIGERS ROSTER TAKING SHAPE

As the start of the regular season approaches, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers' opening night roster continues to take shape. The Sound Tigers have trimmed their training camp roster, yet have also gained some new faces with players having been assigned by the parent club New York Islanders.

The Islanders sent forwards Brandon Cullen and Peter Ferraro along with defenseman Rick Berry, all of whom spent most of preseason at Islanders' training camp.

The release of 16 camp invitees following five exhibition games leaves the Sound Tigers with 28 skaters; the team will continue to make cuts in the final week of practice in preparation for the Oct. 8 season opener at Binghamton.

Players still contending for opening night roster spots are:


Goaltenders:
Wade Dubielewicz
Michael Mole
Billy Thompson

Defenseman:
Drew Fata
Brent Henley
Jason Goulet
Johan Halvardsson
Kevin Mitchell
Bryan Rodney
Ryan Caldwell
Allan Rourke
Mark Wotton
Rick Berry

Forwards:
Jason Pitton
Robert Nilsson
Sergei Ogorodnikov
Ken Magowan
Frans Nielsen
Petteri Nokelainen
Jamie Johnson
Steve Regier
Matt Koalska
Masi Marjamaki
Luch Aquino
Jeremy Colliton
Blake Comeau
Peter Ferraro
Brandon Cullen

The Sound Tigers went 3-2 in preseason games, splitting contests with Hartford and Albany and defeating Providence. Competing for the role of backup goaltender behind returnee Dubielewicz, Mole kicked aside 41 of 46 shots in the final regular season tune-up, a 5-3 setback to Hartford, on Sunday and Thompson stopped 47 shots in a 4-1 loss to Albany on Saturday.

The Sound Tigers play their first regular season home game Friday, Oct. 20 against the Hartford Wolf Pack at 7:30 p.m. For ticket information visit soundtigers.com.
