Sgroi signs PTO with Bridgeport

Brahmas enforcer adds muscle to Sound Tigers

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers have announced that they have signed Brahmas forward Mike Sgroi to a professional tryout contract (PTO).

Sgroi, 32, joins the Sound Tigers after splitting the 2010-11 season between the Brahmas and the Colorado Eagles. In 26 games with Texas, Sgroi tallied four points (1 G, 3 A, -3) and 94 penalty minutes while quickly establishing himself as a fan favorite.

The 6' 5", 230-pound native of Toronto, Ontario has appeared in nearly 200 American Hockey League contests, most recently as a member of the Norfolk Admirals during the 2008-09 season. Sgroi joins the Sound Tigers in Hartford in time for tonight's game against the Connecticut Whale.
