Sound Tigers Announce Change to Preseason Schedule
The Bridgeport Sound Tigers, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the New York Islanders, announced Tuesday a change to the team's 2018 preseason schedule.
The game initially slated for this Friday, September 28 at the Koeppel Community Sports Center has been cancelled by the Hartford Wolf Pack. It will not be rescheduled.
Bridgeport and Hartford will still play a preseason contest this Saturday, September 29, at the Koeppel Community Sports Center on the campus of Trinity College. The puck drops at 1 p.m. and donations will be accepted at the door in lieu of an admission charge, benefitting the Ryan Gordon/Hartford Wolf Pack Community Scholars Fund. 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. Suggested donation is $5 per person.
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.
