DAL COLLE TAKES ON OSHAWA; VANDE SOMPEL IN OHL FIRST-ROUND



One year ago, Michael Dal Colle was hoisting the coveted Memorial Cup as an alternate captain with the Oshawa Generals. Now, Dal Colle begins the quest to repeat as Memorial Cup champion, but this time he’s doing with the Kingston Frontenacs. 

Three months ago, Dal Colle was sent from Oshawa to Kingston in of the largest blockbuster trades in the OHL this season. On Friday, Dal Colle will face off against his former team in the first-round of the OHL playoffs. 

Opposite Dal Colle is Islanders’ 2015 third-round pick and current Oshawa alternate captain, Mitchell Vande Sompel, who is also looking to repeat as a Memorial Cup champ. Dal Colle and the Western Conference Champions Frontenacs will host Vande Sompel and the Generals in Game 1 on Friday at 7:00 p.m.

SOUND TIGERS HEATING UP AT THE RIGHT TIME

Bridgeport: 36-23-3-3, (78 points), 4th in Atlantic Division, 6th in Eastern Conference

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers went 3-0-0 this week to help bump them up to sixth in the AHL standings. With just 11 games left in the regular season, the Sound Tigers are heading up at the right time, grabbing valuable points. Bridgeport is currently riding a five-game winning streak as they work their way up the Eastern Conference standings. Bridgeport’s 78 points is enough to tie the Providence Bruins at third place in the Atlantic Division but the Bruins have a game in-hand.

Bridgeport opened the week with a 4-2 win over the Falcons in Springfield. James Wright led the way for the Sound Tigers, scoring six points (2G, 4A) last week, starting with a multi-point game (1G, 1A) in Wednesday’s win. But that was just the start Wright’s big week. The Bridgeport alternate captain added an assist in Saturday’s 2-1 OT win over against Portland and a goal and two helpers in Sunday’s win over Albany. Islanders’ 2013 sixth-rounder Alan Quine also recorded a big week with back-to-back multi-point games on Saturday and Sunday, which included Saturday’s OT GWG.

MAVERICKS GO 2-2; INCH CLOSER TO REGULAR SEASON CHAMPS

Missouri: 48-10-3-2, (101 points), 1st in Central Division, 1st in Western Conference, 1st in the ECHL

With only nine games left in the regular season, the Mavericks are just the second team to have clinched a playoff berth. The Mavs, 2-2-0 this week locked up the Central Division this week with the four points.

The Mavericks clinched the top stop in the Central with a 6-3 win over the reigning Kelly Cup champion, Allen Americans, on Wednesday. Missouri followed with the division-clinching win with back-to-back losses to Tulsa and Wichita on Saturday and Sunday, but closed out the weekend and their four-game road trip on a high note with a 3-2 win over the Thunder on Sunday.

The Mavs will look to capture the regular-season championship this week with a game at home against the Evansville Icemen on Wednesday and a pair against the Allen Americans on Saturday and Sunday.
