Sunday may be a day of relaxtion for most folks, but Providence Bruins center Nate Thompson of Anchorage was a busy boy.
In just his third game back since missing nearly a month of American Hockey League games with injuries, Thompson contributed an assist in the Bruins' 4-3 shootout win at Bridgeport. He was clearly back in the, well, swing of things -- he also got in a fight. Saturday night, Thompson had one goal and one assist in a 8-1 win at Binghampton. In 30 games, Thompson, who earlier this season made his NHL debut, owns 4-8--12 totals.
Also in the 'A' on Sunday, former Aces sniper Chris Minard bagged his team-high 16th goal in the Lowell Devils' 6-3 win against Philly. Minard owns 16-8--24 totals in 27 games and is second on his team in points. Minard's teammate Aaron Voros, the feisty former UAF winger, scored a pair of goals Sunday to improve his line to 6-7--13 in 24 games.
And Hartford Wolf Pack rookie center Brandon Dubinsky of Anchorage contributed an assist in a 4-1 win at Manchester, giving him 9-10--19 totals in 39 games. He is 6-8--14 in his last 19 games.
