Last week prospect Max Pacioretty stated that he would rather stay with the Hamilton Bulldogs, as a top-line forward, rather than toil on a third or fourth line. Fans seemed to think Eller should do likewise, but he is more familiar with the role he is in.
Bulldogs got to school: The Hamilton Bulldogs had an unusual start time in their game against the Lake Erie Monsters Tuesday, in Cleveland. As part of a School Day promotion, the two teams squared off at 11am.
