Prospects (and players in the system) in Action Today

  • Collin Adams (UND)
  • Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Collin Adams and his University of North Dakota have unfinished business after the 2019-20 season was cut short. The top team in college hockey has it’s sights clearly set on winning the NCHC tourney and then bringing home a Frozen Four championship.

Topline center Adams, is already making a splash in UND’s push for a title. He has a five-point night in the Fighting Hawks opening win of the NCHC tournament.

Since December of 2020, Adams’s side is 4-2 against their next opponents, the University of Denver.

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers are in action today riding a two-game losing streak against the Providence Bruins (remember they only play two other teams this season). The Sound Tigers hold a -6 goal differential across both games, scoring just a single goal. That goal, courtesy of Dmytro Timashov came in garbage time or a 4-1 loss.

Only the Belleville Senators have a worse record than the Sound Tigers in the entirety of the 28 team AHL.

To be fair, we know that the Sound Tigers aren’t loaded with talent. But they still churn out players for the senior squad. With the play of Oliver Wahlstrom and Kieffer Bellows lately, head coach Brent Thompson has brought: Ryan Pulock, Adam Pelech, Scott Mayfield, Wahlstrom, and Bellows (don’t forget Devon Toews) into the NHL. His Sound Tigers might not be winning, but he’s developing players for the Isles.
