HAMILTON, ONT — The Hamilton Bulldogs have some new faces on their team as they embark on a trip down East to Newfoundland.

The Montreal Canadiens have sent defenceman Jarred Tinordi down to the Bulldogs as newly acquired d-man Sergei Gonchar makes his way into the lineup. There is no point to sit Tinordi in the press-box when he could be playing 20+ minutes with the Bulldogs. We could see Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu switch places throughout the next couple of months if the Habs back end stays healthy.

The Habs also made more roster changes this week, in the demotion of forward Rene BourqueBourque was placed on waivers earlier this week and was not claimed as was assigned to the Bulldogs.

Down in Hamilton, the Bulldogs signed forward Sahir Gill to a professional try out contract, once again. Gill has played eight games with the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL this year scoring eight points (2 goals, 6 assists).

The Bulldogs took today to travel to St. John’s Newfoundland as they get ready for a two game set agiasnt the IceCaps on Thursday and Friday. I will have a game preview posted here on Thursday to get you set for the game.

The Bulldogs are back home on Sunday as they host the Rochester Americans.
