Sound Tiger Notes
A trio of notes based on Sound Tigers beat reporter Mike Fornabaio's blog:
1. Rhett Rakhshani hopes to be back within 2 weeks. Expect him to go to Bridgeport.
2. David Ullstrom (who now leads the team in goals with 10) has a goal in 6 straight games (aka all six games that Nino played with Bridgeport).
3. The biggest story brewing in Bridgeport may be rookie goaltender Anders Nilsson. Said Sound Tiger coach Brent Thompson after yesterday's win "Anders basically won us the game." As I noted in The Skinny yesterday, Nilsson's 5 wins are second among all AHL rookies. Nilsson, just 21, was the 62nd overall pick in 2009.
