Obligatory: Mike Keenan joins New York Islanders organization

I mean I guess a tryout is okay... - Jim McIsaac

A few links about the Dartmouth captain and other Bridgeport happenings.

Yes, he's no doubt gotten this all his life in hockey -- at least his name isn't Michael Bolton though -- so we'll just run that joke into the ground: Mike Keenan has taken a trial position in the New York Islanders organization.

Fortunately for all concerned, the position is AHL defenseman for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, not resurrected tyrant coach of yesteryear.

Apparently this Keenan, 24, of Weymouth, Mass. -- and not that Keenan -- was captain of Dartmouth through their just-completed NCAA season. Before Dartmouth, there were two years with Sioux City in the USHL. Listed at 6'0", 190 lbs., he joins the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on an Amateur Tryout (ATO).

Anyway, those aren't the only moves at Bridgeport this week: defenseman Marc Cantin was assigned to ECHL Las Vegas, and Jason Clark is recalled from ECHL Gwinnett, where he's been since December.

Also, from Michael Fornabaio this morning: Anders Nilsson back on the ice (but John Persson not).
