New, comments

With playoff hopes fading, the Bulldogs found offense in an unexpected place this past week.

Hamilton Bulldogs Hockey Club

Bulldogs Player of the Week: Nick Sorkin

It was a quiet week for many of the Bulldogs' star players so it was up to the less heralded guys to step up this week, and that is exactly what Nick Sorkin did. His pair of goals against the Texas Stars paced Hamilton to their only win of the week. The undrafted free agent from the University of New Hampshire has 11 goals and 13 assists on the season, which places him eighth overall in scoring for the Bulldogs.

Charles Hudon: It continues to be a rough second half of the year for the rookie star. Hudon was without a point this week, but he still remains in the top three for rookie scoring.

Gabriel Dumont: The Bulldogs' captain grabbed one assist this week on an Eric Tangradi goal.

Sven Andrighetto: Much like Hudon, the Bulldogs' sniper is having trouble finding the net of late and failed to record a point this week.

Daniel Carr: The leading rookie goal scorer potted his 23rd goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to Utica. Carr's 23 goals continues to lead all rookies in that category.

Eric Tangradi: April continues to be a harsh month for the veteran forward who managed just one goal in three games this week.

Drayson Bowman: After being scratched for a few games, Bowman continues to put up points every week. In three games this week he grabbed just one assist.

Christian Thomas: The Bulldogs' sniper grabbed one assist on the week, on Eric Tangradi's thirteenth goal of the year.

Darren Dietz: The sophomore blueliner's struggles continue as he did not record a point this week.

Mac Bennett: The rookie blueliner recorded no points this week and was a scratch during a 5-0 loss to Texas.

Morgan Ellis: Despite no points this week Ellis has become the team's new top defensemen as Bryan Allen suffered a season ending foot injury.

Connor Crisp: The rookie forward had his best week in a long time,with an assist on Brandon McNally's first professional goal and five shots on goal.

Dalton Thrower: No points for the rough and tumble defensemen again this week.

Mike Condon: The Bulldogs' starting goalie continues to struggle down the stretch and posted one win in three starts this week.

Joey MacDonald: The veteran netminder did not start any games for Hamilton this week.

Josiah Didier: Fresh off the end of his NCAA career Didier immediately found his way into the Hamilton line up alongside Joe Finley and Bobby Shea. He did not register any points but did grab his first pro fight in a 5-0 loss to Texas.

Brett Lernout: The 2014 draft pick also was inserted right into the Bulldogs line up and despite five shots on goal did not record any points.
