NEWARK, NJ — Mike Sislo’s first two seasons in the AHL were nearly identical. In 2011-12, he produced 27 points (9g-18a) in 59 games and in 2012-13, he had 26 points (13g-13a) in 61 games.
Last season he found is pace; his touch. He finished third on the team with 41 points and first with 23 goals, appearing in 59 games. He also served as an alternate captain.
“It was a good year for myself and good year for the team. The coaches put a lot of trust in me and gave me a bigger role on the team and I tried to take advantage of that.”
His 2013-14 campaign included 14-game stint in the NHL that he hopes to build off of this training camp.
“I think the the familiarity and the experience helped a lot. It gave me confidence coming into this year. Things I could take away that were positive and negative to improve on and be better player at the beginning of this year than I was at the end of last year.”
For his career, Sislo, who played four seasons at the University of New Hampshire, has played 182 AHL games, producing 94 points with 45 goals and 49 helpers.
