A quick check-in on a Wednesday afternoon. Little bits of information keep trickling in about Kyle's Bridgeport assignment. Here's what we know:
Although he's now with the team, Kyle will not dress for tonight's (Wed.) game against the Portland Pirates. He will skate with the team Thursday morning and make his Bridgeport debut on Friday night in Binghamton.
When he does step on the ice, Okposo will be wearing #12. We think it's nice of the organization to assign him #12 so we don't have to change the banner graphic at the top of this page...
It seems as if Kyle will be thrown right into the fire in two ways. According to what we've read, he'll be playing on the top line along with Jeff Tambellini and Frans Nielsen. Tambellini is a budding star in his own right and is the Sound Tigers' leading scorer. Also, with three games in three nights, Kyle will be getting an early test of his stamina.
Members of Okposo Net will be present at both Saturday's and Sunday's home games. We'll have more Kyle info than you want and certainly more than you need. If we can fight through the media crowd, you may even see a quote or two from the man himself. It promises to be an exciting weekend in Okposo-land!
