Matt Bain joins the Sound Tigers for the 2011-12 campaign for his first season as the team's athletic trainer.
The Colorado native is somewhat of a familiar face to the Islanders organization, having worked most recently at Professional PT in Garden City, NY, treating some of the Islanders with their team PT Tim Mauro from 2009-11.
Prior to his work at Professional PT, Bain served as the head athletic trainer and strength and conditioning coach for the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League from 2007-09.
Bain earned his B.S. in Athletic Training from Boston University in 2007 and followed that up with his M.S. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion at California University of Pennsylvania in 2008.
