Hamilton Bulldog Player of the Week - Nathan Beaulieu

Claus Andersen

Nathan Beaulieu was a point per game player this week, the slick defenceman notched two assists in two games.

It was a tough week for the Dogs' who seemed to have some Jet lag on the first night of the back to back against the St. John's IceCaps, getting blown out 5-0. Very few positives to take out from that game, but in the second contest the Bulldogs lost a close game 4-3 after Saint John's scored 3 unanswered goals.

In the second game Beaulieu led the way with 2 assists, setting up Patrick Holland's 8th of the season, and later assisting on Phillipe Lefebvre's 2nd of the year. Even though the Bulldogs lost both games this week, Beaulieu was a solid defender, especially considering the Bulldogs were without Jarred Tinordi, Gabriel Dumont, and Mike Blunden who were filling in for the Canadiens.

Beaulieu now has 6 goals and 16 assists in 59 games this season. Good for 5th in team scoring (1st for defenceman). Just a note, Gabriel Dumont leads the Dogs with 30 points.

The Bulldogs have now lost three straight games but have been much better of late, with a 9-7-0 record in their last 16 games.

Kind of a bad luck run for the Bulldogs who have lost a few players to Montreal on injury recall, right when they were starting to roll. The good news is that they will likely get these guys back, and gain a few players from the CHL, like Brady Vail. Of course, we can't expect too much from more young rookies on this already youth oriented roster.
