HAMILTON, ONT. The Hamilton Bulldogs Hockey Club announced today forward Gabriel Dumont has been named the 13th captain in team history. The club also named four alternate captains, including forward Jake Dowell and defenceman Greg Pateryn for home games, as well as defencemen Davis Drewiske and Joe Finley for road games.

Dumont, 24, is the longest-serving member of the Bulldogs’ active roster. Heading into his fifth full season with the team, the Ville Degelis, Que. native has played all of his 252 career American Hockey League regular season games with Hamilton, over which time he has amassed 109 points (53 goals, 56 assists) and 328 penalty minutes. In 31 career AHL playoff games with the ‘Dogs, he has collected 11 points (eight goals, three assists) and 18 penalty minutes. The 5-10, 184-pound forward was an alternate captain for the Bulldogs for the 2013-14 season.

The club’s four alternates also bring a demonstrated history of leadership. Dowell, 29, in his first season with the Bulldogs, was an AHL captain with the Rockford IceHogs (2009-10) and the Iowa Wild (2013-14). Drewiske, 29, in his second season with Hamilton, was captain of the University of Wisconsin Badgers in 2007-08 and was also a member of the 2011-12 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings. Finley, 27, in his first season with the ‘Dogs, has played five professional seasons and was an AHL alternate captain with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2013-14.
