This week Bridgeport only played one game. But what a game it was. Kevin Poulin was a wall, turning away 25 of 27 while coming up with huge saves at the end of regulation. Travis Hamonic [Kohn, Hisey] put in the OT winner and was named the first star of the game. The other goals were scored by David Ullstrom [Joensuu, Hamonic] and Hisey [Schremp and Kohn]. The team finished even on +/- except for Hamonic, Kohn, Schremp and Hisey who finished +1.
Natural Born Kirills
The bigger news this week was the trade of Kirill Kabanov from the Montcon Wildcats to the Lewistown MAINEiacs. Lewistown traded Jordan Kennedy, a second round draft pick in 2011, a fourth round draft pick in 2011, a first round pick in the 2011 CHL Import Draft, and a fourth round draft pick in 2012. Let's hope another change of scenery is what Kirill needed.
Kirill Petrov played two more games, but didn't add to his season totals of 3 goals and 6 assists.

Cody Rosen is still 3rd on the depth chart for Clarkson University and has yet to see the ice after seven games.
Sorry if this is late guys, I was still beat from last night. I also didn't post the season totals for Bridgeport because they only played one game. It seemed like a bit of a waste with only one game played. Otherwise it looked like a pretty good week for most of the prospects.
