If you look at the Bridgeport Sound Tigers twitter account - they are hinting about a big change there too.  Rumor here is that with the parent club shifting to the UBS Arena in the fall - the AHL team will move to Nassau Coliseum.  Further rumor has it that the Ranger$ may relocate to the Bridgeport building - which I have been to and is nice.

I have no facts - but this is a poorly kept secret and the BST twitter feed is fueling it.
