Bulldogs Player of the Week: Daniel Carr
The rookie out of Union College continues to put together an outstanding first season for the Hamilton Bulldogs. Carr registered four points in two games played this weekend, and took over the team lead for goals.
He kicked off his week by opening the scoring with a pair of goals on Darcy Kuemper of the Iowa Wild. The following night he notched two more goals against Calvin Pickard and the Lake Erie Monsters to take over the team-lead in goals. Carr now has seven goals in his last eight games played and has crept into the top-20 for rookie scoring.

Charles Hudon: After a few quiet weeks the rookie phenom broke out of his slump this weekend. Hudon posted a pair of assists on Friday night in a 5-3 loss to the Iowa Wild. The following night he got another assist before scoring his 12th goal of the season. Hudon now sits seventh in overall scoring in the AHL and leads all rookies in total points.
Sven Andrighetto: The star sniper's slump continues as Andrighetto managed a lone assist this week on a Daniel Carr goal.
Gabriel Dumont: The Bulldogs captain is currently on recall with the Montreal Canadiens.
Drayson Bowman: The AHL veteran missed the scoresheet this week in two games played.
Christian Thomas: The speedy winger is still on recall with the Canadiens where he is playing in the bottom-six currently.
Davis Drewiske: With an assist on a Daniel Carr goal, Drewiske continues to have a career best season for the Bulldogs.
Darren Dietz: After an offensive outburst last week Dietz missed both games this weekend with an injury. He is currently listed as day-to-day and should play in this week's games.
Greg Pateryn: While it is unlikely that Pateryn will match his point totals from last season he continues to consistently produce. The 'Dogs go to blueliner notched one assist in two games this weekend.
Magnus Nygren: Unfortunately Nygren has returned home to Sweden to continue recovering from a concussion.
Mac Bennett: The rookie blue-liner registered one assist this week on Daniel Carr's thirteenth goal of the year.
Jacob de la Rose: The young Swede is currently playing on Montreal's third line alongside Lars Eller and Christian Thomas.
Eric Tangradi: The veteran forward grabbed one assist on the week and doesn't seem to be hampered by the injury that kept him out for a month.
Jarred Tinordi: After grabbing an assist last week, Tinordi registered his first goal of the season in a 5-3 loss to the Iowa Wild.
Connor Crisp: The rookie forward is nearing a return after missing time with an injury suffered against Lake Erie.
Bryan Allen: Much of the same from Allen this week, no points, two penalty minutes and a single shot on net
Jack Nevins: The resident enforcer is likely to miss the next two to three weeks with an injury sustained against Grand Rapids.
Morgan Ellis: After a red hot January, Ellis is off to a slow start with zero points in four games for the Wheeling Nailers.
Dalton Thrower: The hard nosed defensemen finally broke his scoreless drought with a single assist in two games played for the Brampton Beast.
Mike Condon: With a two-year contract extension signed Condon showed why the Habs want him in their farm system. He stopped all thirty four shots faced against Lake Erie for his third shutout of the year in a 4-0 win. Condo now sits fifth in the AHL in GAA and first overall in SV%.
Joey MacDonald: The Bulldogs backup goalie lost his only start of the week to the Iowa Wild 5-3.
