Bulldogs Player of the Week: Jarred Tinordi
In a week where the Bulldogs displayed their best Rene Bourque and Scott Gomez impressions, the behemoth blueliner made his presence felt. First against Adirondack on Saturday he threw an innocent looking hit and destroyed a pane of glass at the First Ontario Centre.
Not quite content with that Tinordi also engaged long time
pile of crap AHL enforcer Trevor Gillies in a spirited tilt later in the game.

The Bulldogs tallied zero goals this week so to avoid doing a large amount of player profiles I'll sum up their weekend in one simple way: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
On the injury front: Magnus Nygren remains shelved with an apparent upper body injury and there isn't a timetable for his return yet. Dalton Thrower returned from injury for the ECHL's Brampton Beast and tallied an assist and a fight in two games played.
Concerns: Charles Hudon is mired in a slump and managed only one shot on goal this weekend. The Bulldogs rely heavily on the young forwards production so they need him to find his scoring touch again. Sven Andrighetto is currently being used as an extra forward at Habs practice meaning he is likely a healthy scratch for Michel Therrien. It might be wise to send Andrighetto down to Hamilton and use Drayson Bowman or Eric Tangradi as press box fodder instead. Connor Crisp still has one game left in his suspension for leaving the bench to instigate a fight against Texas.
Bright Spots: Nathan Beaulieu has been bumped up to the second pairing alongside Sergei Gonchar in Montreal which hopefully means his time in Hamilton is over. Jacob de la Rose has exploded at this years World Junior Hockey Championships with four points in two games played while captaining Team Sweden.
