Hamonic/Nelson back to full contact

An important cog to the Isles defense and an important prospect have been cleared for full contact.  Mike Fornabaio has tweeted that both Travis Hamonic and Brock Nelson have shed the "no contact" jerseys for today's practice.

The Sound Tigers have one of those cherished AHL 3 in 3's this weekend -- in Providence on Friday, at home with Portland on Saturday, and in Albany on Sunday.  These are the final Sound Tiger games until January 19th, the expected start of the NHL season.

Bridgeport is 17-14-2-2, and sit in 2nd place in their division.  They will reach the halfway point of their 76-game schedule with their game in Albany.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
