Kristo Redentor

Flyers Sign Two To Future Entry-Level Contracts

The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Monday that they had signed Matt Mangene (F/D, University of Maine) and Matt Konan (D, Medicine Hat, WHL) to future entry-level contracts.

First reported by CBC’s Tim Wharsby, Mangene will forgo his senior year to join the Flyers.

The 23-year-old has tallied an impressive 34 points in 40 games for the Maine Black Bears this season. In 105 total games over his three years at UM, Mangene has scored 55 points.

Mangene was ranked the top defensive player by CBS College Sports. He has been praised for his speed and his prowess at creating scoring opportunities.

Sound Tigers Evicted From Arena

The players have not been allowed on the ice at the Webster Bank Arena since their loss to the Norfolk Admirals on Sunday, March 11. They have been allowed to remove equipment and personal belongings from the locker room but they are not permitted to use the ice, whether for practice or conditioning. Still in contention to win the divisional title and thus a third seed in the playoffs, the Sound Tigers need their ice time.

Fortunately two excellent local facilities (Bridgeport’s ‘Wonderland Of Ice’ and Shelton’s ‘Sports Center of Connecticut’) are available to satisfy the need for ice time but something else will be missing. When finally allowed to return to home ice at the arena on the 25th of March, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers logo will not be at center ice.
