HAMILTON, ON — The Hamilton Bulldogs will continue their season long seven game homestand tonight at the FirstOntario Centre as they play host to the Grand Rapids Griffins, the AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings at 7:30 p.m.
I took in the morning skate at FOC. Here are some notes to get you set for the game…
The Bulldogs enter tonight’s contest with a record of 16-17-6 and currently sit 11th in the Western Conference. The Griffins have a record of 19-13-4 and sit 7th with a 19-13-3-1 record.
The big news out of Hamilton this morning is the return of defenceman Jarred Tinordi, who will slide back into the lineup tonight. Tinordi was injured in a fight against the Utica Comets last Friday and was out for three games due to facial and head injuries.
Joey MacDonald, who was originally supposed to start in goal for the Bulldogs this evening, is now up with the Montreal Canadiens with Carey Price injured day-to-day. So you can expect Mike Condon to get the start in goal.
