Bulldogs Player of the Week: Charles Hudon
One week without a point was more than enough for Charles Hudon who broke out of his small slump this past week. The Bulldogs leading scorer started his week with an absolutely gorgeous individual effort against Rockford where he stole the puck, broke in on goal alone, out waited the goalie and scored his tenth of the year. Hudon ended the week by setting up Drayson Bowman's sixth goal of the year against Milwaukee. The rookie forward sits fifth overall in the AHL scoring race and still leads the rookie scoring race by five points. Hudon was also named to the AHL All-Star squad.
