Brock Nelson Loaned to Bridgeport

Forward Brock Nelson was loaned to Bridgeport by the Islanders tonight after being a healthy scratch all week. Nelson will play tomorrow afternoon when the Sound Tigers face off against Binghamton in Bridgeport. Their next game after tomorrow is next Saturday, so Nelson will likely be right back up with the big club following Sunday’s game. Nelson needs to play somewhere, so he may bounce back and forth a bit. ┬áThe team doesn’t seem keen to scratch a veteran in favor of Nelson but also likely doesn’t want him practicing with the Sound Tigers.
