BRIDGEPORT, CT - The American Hockey League's Bridgeport Sound Tigers, top affiliate of the National Hockey League's New York Islanders, have signed defenseman Dustin Kohn to an amateur tryout contract. Kohn was the second selection, 46th overall, of the Islanders in last summer's NHL Entry Draft and joins center Ryan O\'Marra, the big club's first pick last summer, on the Sound Tigers' roster.
Kohn, 19, comes to the Sound Tigers from the Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings for whom he posted two goals, 13 assists, 15 points and 30 penalty minutes in 31 games this season. The 6'1'' 195-pounder from Edmonton, Alberta was acquired by Brandon in January from the WHL\'s Calgary Hitmen with whom he notched two goals, 12 assists, 14 points and 20 penalty minutes in 38 games giving him season totals of four goals, 25 assists, 29 points and 50 penalty minutes in 69 games. Kohn played for Calgary the previous two seasons (2003-05). He practiced with the Sound Tigers at Bridgeport's Arena at Harbor Yard Wednesday morning.
