SOUND TIGERS UPDATE
For the week ending 11/7/10...

THE WEEK THAT WAS… The Sound Tigers had a busy stretch this past week with four games in five days on the schedule and managed a 2-2-0-0 record over the four contests. Veteran forward Jon Sim joined the team Wednesday morning after clearing waivers on Tuesday, and made an immediate impact with a hat trick and the game-winner in the shootout as the Sound Tigers beat the Springfield Falcons 6-5 in front of 7,650 students during their annual “Cool Fun 101” game. The Sound Tigers followed that up with a 6-1 road loss to the Providence Bruins on Friday night before returning to Connecticut for a home-and-home against Hartford. Sim picked up where he left off on Wednesday with two more goals against the Wolf Pack, and Kevin Poulin made 28 saves as the Sound Tigers handled Hartford 4-1 on Saturday night. However, Hartford responded on Sunday as Mats Zuccarello recorded a hat trick en route to a 7-1 Wolf Pack victory.

YOU’RE SIM-PLY THE BEST…
Prior to being recalled by the Islanders on Tuesday, forward Jon Sim was the Sound Tigers biggest contributor over this past week with five goals in the four-game span, including his hat trick against Springfield on Wednesday. His three-goal outburst against the Falcons was the first time a Sound Tiger recorded a hat trick at the Arena at Harbor Yard since Sim was with the team at the end of the 2008-09 season, when he scored three times in a 6-3 win over Albany on April 5, 2009.

"POULIN WALL"…
Rookie goaltender Kevin Poulin has been a standout in net for the Sound Tigers in the early part of their 10th Anniversary Season. The Montreal native earned his third win in four starts on Saturday with a 4-1 victory over Hartford. His 1.75 goals against average is second best in the AHL, and his .940 save percentage is tops in the league. Both marks lead all rookie goaltenders.

SVENDSEN SIGNED TO PTO...
The Sound Tigers announced the signing of forward Brandon Svendsen to a professional tryout contract (PTO) on Sunday Afternoon. The Maplewood, MN native had been with the Kalamazoo Wings, ECHL affiliate of the Sound Tigers, and compiled 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in nine games with the K-Wings.

UPCOMING WEEK…
The Sound Tigers will play three games in three days during the upcoming week and weekend. Jack Capuano’s squad will kick off the schedule with their first ever trip North Carolina to take on the Charlotte Checkers, affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, who are in their first year in the American Hockey league. The Sound Tigers will play a pair in Charlotte, then head back to the Arena at Harbor Yard on Saturday for a matchup against the Norfolk Admirals at 7 p.m. The first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive the first of three limited edition 10th Anniversary player card sets. This first set will feature Robin Figren, Dustin Kohn, Dylan Reese, and Mikko Koskinen.
