Team identity[edit] Mascot[edit] The lone mascot of the Sound Tigers is an anthropomorphic blue tiger named Storm. He appears at home games sporting a jersey with the number 01.

Rivalries[edit] The main (and instate) rival of the Sound Tigers are the Hartford Wolf Pack, the AHL affiliate of the New York Rangers

They also are semi-rivals with the Hershey Bears, the Washington Capitals’ AHL affiliate. Season-by-season results[edit]
