Bulldogs Player of the Week: Eric Tangradi
It's been an absolutely outstanding month for Eric Tangradi, and his offensive output is a major reason why the Bulldogs are sitting in a playoff spot. With one goal and four assists he was a force in all three games played this past week.
Tangradi kicked off the week by setting up T.J. Hensick's seventh goal of the year in a 2-1 victory over the Adirondack Flames. Following that he posted a multipoint effort in a 3-2 overtime loss against Rochester. First he grabbed an assist on Charles Hudon's 15th goal of the year, before scoring the game tying goal with 64 seconds left in the game. He then ended the week with a primary assist on Gabriel Dumont's 19th goal of the year against Toronto that ended up being the game winner.
The veteran forward has played over a point-per-game pace for the Bulldogs in March, tallying seven goals and six assists in 12 total games played with one game left.

Charles Hudon: After a few rough weeks the Bulldogs star rookie he found his way back on to the scoresheet. Hudon kicked off his scoring with an incredible dangle and backhand goal against Rochester, and would grab an assist the following day against Toronto.
Gabriel Dumont: The Bulldogs captain had only one point on the week, but it was a huge one as he scored the game winning goal against Toronto.
Sven Andrighetto: A strong March continues for Andrighetto who tallied three points in three games this week. He first set up Eric Tangradi's game tying goal against Rochester, before tallying his fourteenth goal against the Marlies and assisted on Gabriel Dumont's game winning goal.
Daniel Carr: It was a rough week for the rookie forward with no points in three games and just one shot on goal.
Drayson Bowman: The veteran forward failed to register any points in one game played this week.
Christian Thomas: The Bulldogs sniper is finding points hard to come by recently and was without a point this week.
Darren Dietz: After a quick start to the season Dietz has struggled mightily. The young blue-liner had no points this past week despite expanded playing time.
Mac Bennett: With injuries piling up Bennett has seen a larger role on the Bulldogs blue-line. However, like Dietz he failed to record any points this week.
Morgan Ellis: It would appear that Ellis has taken over for the injured Davis Drewiske in the Hamilton defensive core. The young blue-liner played in all situations this past week but still did not record any points.
Bryan Allen: It would appear that the veteran defenceman has found his offensive game. In three games this week he recorded a pair of assists while on a three game point streak.
Connor Crisp: The young grinding forward played only one game this week and recorded no points or PIMs.
Dalton Thrower: The gritty blue-liner recorded no points for the Brampton Beast this week.
Mike Condon: After a few rough weeks the Bulldogs starting goalie put together an outstanding run of starts this past week. With Joey MacDonald injured, Condon started all three games and posted a 2-0-1 record with a .937 SV% and a 1.63 GAA. With points earned in all three starts Condon's performance has moved the Bulldogs into seventh place overall.
Michael Bournival: Dizziness/Upper Body Injury( Day-to-day)
Davis Drewiske: Wrist surgery (Out for the remainder of the season)
Jarred Tinordi: Upper Body Injury (Three weeks)
Magnus Nygren: Severe concussion (Out Indefinitely)
