MONTREAL, QUE. – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs general manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have re-assigned forward Stefan Fournier to the Bulldogs from the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers.

In three games with Wheeling this season since being medically cleared to play and assigned on Jan. 8, Fournier has recorded two assists.

The 22-year-old split the 2013-14 season – his first as a professional – between the Bulldogs and Nailers. In 40 games with Hamilton, the 6-3, 224-pound forward recorded seven points (two goals, five assists) and 86 penalty minutes. In one game with Wheeling, the Dorval, Que. native recorded no points or penalty minutes.

The Canadiens signed Fournier to an entry-level contract on July 6, 2013.

The Bulldogs will be back in action on Wednesday, Jan. 14 when they’ll host the Milwaukee Admirals at FirstOntario Centre at 7:30 p.m.
