Bozon’s Best In This Week’s Prospect Update (Nov. 11-17)
Tim Bozon picked up his first goal as a member of the Ice, to go along with five other points this past week to earn him first star. Earning second star is Martin Reway, who continued his torrential pace, as he scored six points in two games, five of those points coming in one game. Rounding out the three stars is Brady Vail, with his goal and five assists this past week. The Bulldogs’ hottest player went down with injury, while Christian Thomas returned from injury. The Bulldogs’ fourth line stepped up tremendously, but the defence continued to struggle. Two 2013 picks broke their horrible slumps, while a pair of QMJHL players became snakebitten. Mac Bennett and Mark MacMillan continue to struggle and Sebastian Collberg and Artturi Lehkonen finally got on the board.

The hottest Bulldog coming into this past week was SvenAndrighetto. Against the Americans in the first game of the week, Andrighetto would bury his team-leading seventh goal and fourth in as many games. Andrighetto would finish the game with one goal, four shots and a -1 rating. With Christian Thomas returning against the Monsters, Andrighetto was demoted to the second line. Andrighetto understandably had a tough game, where he finished -1 and with two shots. To make matters worse, Andrighetto would miss the final game of the week with an undisclosed injury. Andrighetto is currently day-to-day. The rookie leads the Bulldogs in scoring with seven goals and 11 points in 15 games.

This past week was another in which defenceman Nathan Beaulieu struggled. In the first game, Beaulieu finished with a staggering five shots on goal, but struggled immensely in his own zone. Beaulieu was caught running around many times, and ending up for parka canada goose shop in orlando outlet as he was on the ice for two goals, including the game winner. The following game was similar story for the defenceman as he fired three shots, but was on the ice for two goals, including the game winner. Pointless for the last four games and goalless all season, Beaulieu was looking to contribute offence against the Monsters round two. Beaulieu crept down low on the penalty kill and buried a rebound that landed right on his stick. In the third period, Beaulieu made a costly mistake, as he got beat shorthanded, resulting in the game-tying goal. Beaulieu finished -1 and had three shots on the night. Beaulieu has one goal and three assists in 10 games this season.

Following a quick two game stint in the NHL, Gabriel Dumont was returned to the Bulldogs for their home-and-home stand against the Monsters. Dumont returned with confidence as he played much better this past week than he has previously. Dumont set up a goal by sheer will alone as he dragged multiple defenders with him to the net and then took a shot. Justin Courtnall banged home the rebound. The forward would also register four shots on goal. The following night, Dumont wasn’t statistically exceptional, as he had one shot with a -1 rating, but he still created scoring chances and looked engaged for the most part. An expected leader for the Bulldogs, Dumont has just five assists in 14 games with the Bulldogs.

Last update was a good one for defenceman Morgan Ellis as he was continually improving. The trend continued this week and Ellis was rewarded as he played in all three games this past week. Ellis played with Drew Schiestel again to begin this week where he wasn’t particularly noticeable, which isn’t necessarily bad. The following game the pairings were shaken up and Ellis found himself on a pairing with Nathan Beaulieu. Ellis looked quite impressive as he played simple, mistake-free hockey–a perfect compliment to Beaulieu’s high-octane style. Ellis finished with a shot on goal and +1. The following night, the pairings remained the same, where Ellis looked even better. He finished +1 on the night and grabbed his second assist on the season on Louis Leblanc’s second period snipe. Ellis has two assists in 10 games this season.

It was a big week for Stefan Fournier as he hit a milestone. This past week didn’t get off to a great start for Fournier, as he took a hooking penalty in the first period against the Americans. Later in the game, he received a 10 minute misconduct after protesting Magnus Nygren’s hooking penalty. Fournier would go on finish with just one shot on goal. The following game, the line of Fournier, Joonas Nättinen and Steven Quailer combined for five points. Fournier raced towards a loose puck and then made a nice move around the defender to feed Joonas Nättinen would slid the puck between the goalies’ legs in spectacular fashion. Fournier would pick up his first career professional point. Unfortunately, Fournier suffered an injury in the game and missed the following game. He is currently day-to-day with a lower body injury. Fournier has one assist and 22 penalty minutes in nine games this season.

Since being returned down to the Bulldogs, Louis Leblanc has had his fair share of ups and downs. In the first game of the week, Leblanc was very noticeable, in a good way, as he fired four shots on goal. The following game, Leblanc and his newly formed line of Sven Andrighetto and Maxime Macenauer, struggled quite a bit. They were a combined -5 and registered just five shots on goal. The chemistry between that line was clearly not there. In the second game versus the Monsters, Leblanc was reunited with Nick Tarnasky, taking the injured Andrighetto’s place on the line. Leblanc came off the bench, picked up the puck and walked right into the slot, where he rifled a shot topshelf past the the goaltender, giving Hamilton a 2-1 lead. Leblanc would also add two shots and take a penalty in overtime. Leblanc has six goals and three assists in 13 games for the Bulldogs.

After getting shelled in his only start of the week last update, Robert Mayer was surprisingly given a start this week. Mayer started against Monsters in their first match up of the week. Mayer looked fairly good in the first period, but allowed four goals in the second period, erasing the Bulldogs’ two goal lead. Mayer would get the hook and Tokarski would come in, who allowed one goal on 10 shots. Mayer has a 1-4-0-2 record, along with a 0.891 SV% and a 3.39 GAA in seven games. Mayer has been pulled in his last two starts.

While Joonas Nättinen has been great defensively this season, he simply has not produced enough offence. This past week saw Nättinen double his season total in just one game, but first he had a tough game against the Americans. Nättinen finished -1 that game and was produce absolutely no offence. The following game was the best game of the season for the centre. Stefan Fournier made a nice pass to Nättinen who dove to slide the puck five hole on the goaltender, giving the Bulldogs a 2-0 lead. Later in the game, Nättinen made a quick pass to Blunden who scored on his second try, pulling the Bulldogs within one. With his second goal of the season and his second assist, Nättinen doubled his production on the season and was named the game’s second star. The following game, Nättinen looked very good, despite being unable to pick up a point. Nättinen has two goals and two assists in 16 games this season.

Following a terrific start to his North American professional career, Magnus Nygren has slowed down considerably as of late. In the first game of the week, Nygren took three minor penalties. The following game, due to his poor performance and the return of Greg Pateryn, Nygren was demoted to bottom pairing with enforcer Nathan McIver, which was unsurprisingly an absolute trainwreck. Both players were on the ice for the first three goals by the Monsters, and Nygren was on the ice for another late in the third. Nygren got caught running around, playing the puck carrier too aggressively quite a few times. The following game was every bit as much of a disaster for the pairing, but they were fortunately only the ice for a single goal against. Nygren would go on to finish -1 and with five shots on goal. Nygren, after scoring eight points in his first 10 games, Nygren has no points in his six matches. Nygren has been a minus player in five of those games.

This past week was an interesting one for Erik Nyström. Nyström had a quiet first game against the Americans. He was unable to create scoring chances and really appeared to struggle at times. Christian Thomas made his Bulldogs debut the following night, and Nyström was the player who was scratched. The following game, Nyström was back in the lineup, where he oddly enough played on a line with Martin St. Pierre and Christian Thomas. Nyström, yet again, struggled at times as he hurried up his scoring chances. Nyström has to be more patient with the puck, as he does such a good job obtaining the puck with his intense puck pursuit. Nyström has just three assists in 14 games this season.

Just like Dumont, Greg Pateryn was sent down for the home-and-home stand against the Monsters. With Nygren’s demotion, Pateryn stepped up to the top pairing with Jarred Tinordi. The first game was quite the impressive performance for the both of them. Pateryn took a tough penalty late in the third, but had three shots and was +1. Pateryn looked calm and in control at all times. The following game was a bit tougher for Pateryn. He picked up an assist with a quick pass to Leblanc, but made a few mistakes with the puck. Luckily, none were costly. Pateryn has three goals and five assists, along with a +5 rating and 10 penalty minutes in eight games this season.

Missing the entire season up to this past week with an abdominal tear, Christian Thomas finally made his Bulldogs debut. The sniper was immediately placed on the top line with Martin St. Pierre and Nick Tarnasky against the Monsters. The line turned out to be a disaster as they were a combined -10 on the night. Thomas, understandably, looked slow and apprehensive without the puck. The following game, Thomas appeared to get his legs underneath him a bit more, as he posted three shots on goal. However, he took a lazy tripping penalty while on the powerplay. Thomas has appeared in just two Bulldogs’ games this season, where he has no points.

Following a week that saw up and downs last update, Jarred Tinordi was looking for more consistency this past week. Tinordi played with his regular partner, Magnus Nygren to begin the week. Tinordi struggled, quite a bit, as he got burned multiple times and didn’t look like his normal self. The following game was one of Tinordi’s best of the season. Paired with recently reassigned Greg Pateryn, Tinordi made good plays with and without the puck. Tinordi was +2 in a 5-3 loss and picked up his point of the season with a pass to Gabriel Dumont. Tinordi had a quiet game against the Monsters to close out the week. He made the simple, smart, effective play, something that he sometimes has not been doing this season. Tinordi has one assist, along with a -3 rating and just four penalty minutes in 11 games.

Slowly, a number one goaltender is emerging in Hamilton and that is Dustin Tokarski.Tokarski was given the first start of the week against the Americans, he where put up arguably his best performance of the season. Tokarski stopped 33 of 35 shots he faced, but his terrific went to waste as the Bulldogs were unable to generate offence. For his efforts, he was named second of the game. Mayer allowed four goals on 19 shots the following game, so he was given the hook in favour of Tokarski. Tokarski stopped 9 of the 10 shots he faced and picked up the no decision. The following night, Tokarski got the start, where he managed another incredible performance. Tokarski stopped 28 of 30 shots and all five shooters he faced in the shootout, busting the Bulldogs six game slump. Tokarski has a 5-3-1 record with a 0.920 SV% and a 2.28 GAA in 11 appearances this season.

It was a big week for Connor Crisp as he finally broke out of his slump in spectacular fashion, but parka canada goose shop in orlando outlet didn’t happen without more struggles first. Against the Colts, Crisp struggled. Crisp was demoted to the third line, where he was unable to create much in the way of offence. The second game of the week was played against the Battalion and Crisp fared a bit better. The gritty forward was moved back up to the second line, where he was instrumental in Craig Duininck’s shorthanded goal, but was not awarded a point on the play. He received quite a few scoring chances later in the game, but was unable to capitalize. Against the Ice Dogs, Crisp finally broke out of his slump. Crisp created many chances to tuck one in, but was unable to score until overtime. Crisp burst down the wing and then snapped a quick shot on goal that fooled the goaltender, winning the game and ending an 11 game pointless streak. Crisp has seven goals and eight assists in 23 games played this season.

Two updates ago, Michael McCarron broke his pointless streak and this past week he broke another undesirable streak. Against the 67s, McCarron dropped the mitts with another 6’6″ monster in Tyler Hill. It was an uneventful fight, but slight edge to McCarron, who landed the biggest punches of the tilt. Aside from the fight, parka canada goose shop in orlando outlet was a very quiet game from McCarron, who had just dominated a game against the Spitfires last update. The following game was a different story for McCarron, as he took on the Frontenacs in his first ever nationally broadcasted game. McCarron was great defensively in the game, disrupting countless plays, but he was unable to finish on what should have been four easy goals. He drove the net hard, but lost the handle or whiffed on the shot every game. McCarron’s big breakout game against the team that originally owned his rights–the Belleville Bulls. McCarron opened scoring with a backhander from the top of the crease, ending his 18 game goalless drought. Later in the period, McCarron drove the net hard, where was the beneficiary of a nice pass from Dvorak, picking up his second of the night. For his efforts, McCarron was named second star of the game. McCarron has just three goals and five assists in 20 games this season.

Brady Vail continued to produce this week, all while keeping his strong defensive play. Against the Steelheads, Vail posted two assists, but even more impressive was his +4 rating in the 6-0 victory. Vail’s second assist was a brilliant one-touch pass to Ryan Foss who had the entire net to score on. Two nights later, Vail’s most productive game of the week, he posted a goal and two assists. With a quick shot from a sharp angle, Vail beat the goaltender to open the scoring. Vail was also on the ice for two of the three goals scored by the Spitfires to erase a two goal deficit and win. For his tremendous effort, Vail was named first star. Against the OHL’s top team, the Oshawa Generals, the Spitfires put their three top forwards–Kerby Rychel, Josh Ho-sang, and Brady Vail–on one line in an effort to shut down arguably the league’s best player in Scott Laughton and the league’s second highest scorer in Michael Dal Colle. Not only did they finished a combined -7, but they created virtually no scoring chances, as Vail absolutely dominated them in the offensive zone. Vail also posted an assist on Nikita Yazkov’s opening goal. Vail has 10 goals and 16 assists in 20 games this season and has an incredible +16 rating on the season.

Following a disastrous performance against Rouyn-Noranda, Zachary Fucale has now strung together four consecutive victories. The Mooseheads opened up a back-to-back-to-back on Friday night, against the Voltigeurs. Fucale let in two goals by the nine minute mark of the first period, but weathered the storm for the next 50 minutes as he shut the door. Stopping 26 of 28 shots, Fucale picked up his fourteenth victory of the season. Fucale got the start in the second game of the week, where he was every bit as impressive. Fucale stopped 31 of 34 shots en route to his fifteenth and fourth consecutive victory. Backup, Kevin Darveux got the final start of th
