Forward Yannick Riendeau

Yannick signed on with the Bruins on April 2nd 2009 as a free agent. He is a 5'10 178 pound 23 year old forward.

This season Yannick has split time between the Providence Bruins in the AHL and the Reading Royals in the ECHL. In 18 games in Providence Yannick has put up just 6 points. However in 30 games with Reading Yannick put up 29 points, averaging nearly a point per game.

Last season was spent mostly with Reading but he saw a brief cup of coffee with Providence. In 54 games for Reading he managed to put up 43 points. However in six games for Providence, he managed no points and took a minor penalty.

With the recent call ups of Casey and Ullstrom, Yannick may see some playing time in Bridgeport down the stretch. It will certainly be interesting to see what he contributes if anything during his time here. Even if its nothing its always good to have the extra experienced depth instead of having to deplete random ECHL teams of there players who in most cases have never played at this level let alone been apart of a stretch run such as the one the Tigers are currently apart of.
