Sound Tigers to Face Wolf Pack in Preseason Action
The Bridgeport Sound Tigers, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the New York Islanders, announced today the club's 2018-19 preseason schedule.
The Sound Tigers will play two exhibition games later this month against their in-state rival, the Hartford Wolf Pack. Both games will take place at 1 p.m. at the Koeppel Community Sports Center on the campus of Trinity College in Hartford. The Sound Tigers will be designated as the home team for the first of the two meetings, which will be held Friday, September 28. The exhibition slate concludes the following day, Saturday, September 29.
Both contests are open to the public with a suggested $5 donation to the Ryan Gordon/Hartford Wolf Pack Community Scholars Fund in lieu of an admission charge. The fund memorializes young fan Ryan Gordon, who passed away in 2006 and asked that a portion of the monies set aside for his college education be donated to the Hartford Wolf Pack Community Foundation.
The Koeppel Community Sports Center is located at 175 New Britain Ave. in Hartford.
The Sound Tigers will open their 18th AHL season on Saturday, Oct. 6 with a road matchup against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in Allentown, Penn. Bridgeport's home opener is set for Saturday, Oct. 13 at 1 p.m. against the Rochester Americans.
