Sound Tigers Get Their Sniper Back

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders
The New York Islanders have assigned Jeff Tambellini to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League.

“It’s important for Jeff to play maximum minutes in the AHL,” said Islanders general manager Garth Snow, “and it’s just as important the Sound Tigers make a run for the AHL playoffs so all of our prospects get that crucial experience.”

In 31 games with the Islanders this season, Tambellini has one goal and three assists. In 46 games with the Sound Tigers this season, he is 29-29-58. Prior to his recall to the Islanders, Tambellini was leading the American Hockey League in goals.

The Islanders are proud to team up with the Special Olympics New York-Long Island Region. End mezzanine seats, valued at $50, are being sold for $35 to the Saturday, March 29 Islanders-Philadelphia Flyers game at the Nassau Coliseum.


A portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the Special Olympics New York-Long Island Region.

The Special Olympics was founded to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-style sports for all children and adults with intellectual disabilities, including mental retardation, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of skills and friendship with their families, Special Olympics athletes and the community.
