5:15 pm – The Islanders have returned Mitch Fritz to Bridgeport after the enforcer played one shift last night in Atlanta. With Nate Thompson (groin strain) out and Sean Bergenheim in, expect the Islanders to recall a Sound Tiger on an emergency basis for their home game Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
So we ask you, who’s it going to be?
A. Blake Comeau
B. Tim Jackman
C. Mike Iggulden
D. Jeremy Colliton
Based on what we saw and heard in Bridgeport at their Wednesday matinee, we’re going with Tim Jackman. We also wrote last Saturday that he’s worth a look, so we hope to look smart once in a while.
In 12 games with the Sound Tigers this season, the 6-3, 220-pound wing has 6 goals and 35 penalty minutes.
