Islanders Prospect Report
Pokka helps Finland, Bridgeport splits weekend and Stockton wins series in this week\'s prospect report.
AMATEUR PROSPECTS:

World Juniors Update:

Islanders’ prospects Griffin Reinhart, Adam Pelech, and Ville Pokka are representing their respective countries in the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championships in Malmo, Sweden.

Pelech & Reinhart:
Pelech, a Canadian defenseman, has no points through Canada’s first two games (a 7-2 win over Germany and a 5-4 shootout loss to the Czech Republic). Reinhart sat out the first two (and will miss Monday’s contest against Slovakia) due to a suspension incurred at last years’ tournament, but will be eligable to play Tuesday against the United States.

Pokka:
Pokka, a Finnish blueliner, has two assists in three games to start the tournament. Pokka picked up a helper in Finland's 5-1 win over Norway on Friday and in a 4-1 win over Russia Monday morning. Finland is 2-1 in the tournament, having lost 4-2 to Sweden on Saturday.

PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATES

American Hockey League: Bridgeport Sound Tigers (13-16-1-3), 4th in Northeast Division, 12th in Eastern Conference)

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers earned a weekend split, falling 6-3 to the Springfield Falcons Saturday night, but rebounding for a 3-2 shootout win over the Albany Devils on Sunday. Andrew Clark, Anders Lee and Matt Donovan scored for the Sound Tigers in Saturday’s losing effort. On Sunday, Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Joey Diamond scored in the third period, sending the game to a marathon nine-round shootout. Alan Quine, Mike Halmo and Donovan kept the shootout alive long enough for Michael Devos to score the game-decider. Kenny Reiter made 20 saves in regulation and another six in the bonus round.
