Bulldogs Player of the Week: Gabriel Dumont
The Bulldog kept up his impressive offensive production with three points in three games, after recording a pair of assists in the previous week.
Dumont started his week with an assist on Daniel Carr's seventh goal of the year against Milwaukee in a 4-1 loss. Against Grand Rapids he lead the Bulldogs to a 2-1 win, with a pair of goals, including a beautiful backhand effort from in close. Despite being held off the scoresheet in the following game, Dumont's linemates Charles Hudon and Jacob de la Rose tallied points in a 5-2 blowout victory.
Dumont now currently sits third overall in scoring for the Bulldogs trailing only Hudon and T.J. Hensick, and leads in total shots on goal with one hundred.

*Denotes player is in the NHL
Charles Hudon: After a few slow weeks for the rookie it appears he has found his scoring touch again. While Hudon didn't put the puck in the net, he notched a pair of assists against Grand Rapids. Hudon now sits fifth overall in AHL scoring and first overall in rookie scoring.
Sven Andrighetto: It has been a bit of a struggle for Andrighetto to find the scoresheet since being sent back to Hamilton. The speedy sniper was held pointless for the second consecutive week.
Daniel Carr: It was another successful week for Carr, who scored a pair of goals on the week, the first being the lone goal in a 4-1 loss to the Milwaukee Admirals. Carr scored his eighth of the season in a 5-2 rout of Grand Rapids to bring his point total to eighteen.
Christian Thomas: Thomas is currently playing alongside Lars Eller and Jiri Sekac in Montreal, but has yet to record a point.
Magnus Nygren: Unfortunately Nygren is out indefinitely due to the lingering effects of a concussion.
Drayson Bowman: The AHL vet was without a point in two games played this week and was made a healthy scratch for the final game of the week.
Michael Bournival: The hard-checking forward is playing on Montreal's fourth line where he recorded no points in last week's games.
Eric Tangradi: An upper body injury will keep Tangradi out at least a few more weeks according to head coach Sylvain Lefebvre.
Mac Bennett: The rookie defencemen had a single assist on the week, via a Gabriel Dumont goal against Grand Rapids.
Greg Pateryn: The Bulldogs go-to blueliner went pointless this week, while generating eight shots on goal. Pateryn is second on the team in scoring by defencemen with eleven points.
Jacob de la Rose: It appears his new linemates, Charles Hudon and Gabriel Dumont, have sparked de la Rose's offensive fire. The Swedish forward set up Dumont's game winning goal against Grand Rapids on Friday, before scoring a game winner of his own the following night.
Darren Dietz: It was another solid week for Dietz who registered a pair of assists over three games. He first set up Daniel Carr's lone goal against Milwaukee, then added a helper on Gabriel Dumont's eighth of the year against Grand Rapids.
Davis Drewiske: In a bit of a surprise, Drewiske is currently the Bulldogs best scoring defencemen with thirteen points. Drewiske's points all came in a 5-2 win over Grand Rapids. He grabbed assists on Nick Sorkin and T.J Hensick goals. To cap off the multi-point effort, the veteran defencemen scored his fourth of the year early in the first period.
Jarred Tinordi: After being knocked out in a fight against Utica and missing the game against Milwaukee, Tinordi returned to the Hamilton lineup. He was held pointless in Friday's game, but responded with two assists the following night against Grand Rapids. He says he's feeling no ill effects from the head injury, and will likely continue to be a reliable presence on the blue line.
Morgan Ellis: The Wheeling Nailers continue to rely on the scoring of Ellis from the blue line, and the young rearguard added two more points this week. First was an assist against the Brampton Beast. Ellis followed that up with his eighth goal of the campaign the next game.
Dalton Thrower: With his suspension served, Thrower was called up to the AHL, though it is unclear if he will crack the Bulldogs lineup right now.
Jack Nevins: The Bulldogs resident enforcer did his thing again this week with his twelfth fight of the season against Chris Bruton.
Connor Crisp: No games played for Crisp this week as he recovers from an injury caused by Lake Erie's Daniel Maggio.
Mike Condon: With MacDonald called up Condon started all three games this week for Hamilton and posted a pair of wins. Condon currently ranks seventh in the AHL in SV% and eleventh in GAA.
Joey MacDonald: The veteran goalie was called up to serve as Dustin Tokarski's back up for one game and has since been returned to Hamilton.
