The Bridgeport Sound Tigers (1-1-0-0), proud AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders, opened their 2018-19 season last weekend with a two-game split in Pennsylvania. Former first-round pick Michael Dal Colle (2014) paved the way offensively with a team-high four points (one goal, three assists), while several other first-rounders also made an impact.
 
Islanders' 2016 first-round selection Kieffer Bellows scored a goal in his professional debut on Saturday, but it wasn't enough in a 6-3 setback to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in Bridgeport's season opener at PPL Center. Dal Colle (one goal, one assist) and Mitch Vande Sompel (one goal, one assist) also scored 17 seconds apart midway through the third period, while first-rounder Josh Ho-Sang (2014) notched two assists. Two of Bridgeport's three goals came on the power play.

He's already heard it, but that's fine, it keeps him motivated and gives him some extra drive when going into the corners or clearing the front of the net. 

"I like just proving people wrong," Quenneville said. "I'm a small guy and I've had doubters my whole life. Just have to keep proving."
