It was nearly two months to the day from when the American Hockey League paused its season because of COVID-19 to the day it completely canceled it in May.

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders, had 13 games left in a season in which they weren’t going to qualify for the Calder Cup Playoffs. They finished the 2019-20 season with a 23-33-5-2 record over 63 games.

The AHL season is tentatively scheduled to begin Dec. 4, but that could change depending on the ongoing situation with COVID-19. In the meantime, Bridgeport Sound Tigers head coach Brent Thompson has been preparing for whenever things do start up again.

NYI Hockey Now spoke with Thompson to find out what he’s been doing with the downtime and how he and his staff are preparing for next season.
