Bridgeport Signs 5 Players

According to islanderspointblank, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers signed 5 players to contracts today.

Forward Justin Johnson signed an AHL contract.  Meanwhile, defensemen Sean Escobedo, Mathieu Coderre-Gagnon, forward Ben Rosen, and goalie Parker Milner agreed to two way AHL/ECHL contracts.  The Islanders, a couple days ago came to an agreement with the Stockton Thunder to serve as their ECHL affiliate.

Johnson, the oldest of the group at age 32 has accumulated 392 penalty minutes the last three season playing in the AHL for the Manchester Monarchs.  So, he will be added to a team that already features enforcers Brett Gallant and Chris Bruton so teams better think twice before they try and take liberties against Bridgeport next season.
