MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Bulldogs have recalled forward Stephen MacAulay from the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers.
In 12 games this season with Wheeling, MacAulay has recorded two assists and 14 penalty minutes. The Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia native split last season between the Saint John Sea Dogs and Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. In 34 regular season games with Saint John, he recorded 36 points (18 goals, 18 assists) and 36 penalty minutes. In 25 regular season games with Halifax, he recorded 26 points (13 goals, 13 assists) and 16 penalty minutes.
The 21-year-old is the only player to ever participate in four QMJHL President Cup Finals and win three championships and compete in three Canadian Hockey League Memorial Cup Championships and capture two titles. He was originally selected by the St. Louis Blues in the sixth round (164th overall) in the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
Hamilton’s next game is scheduled for Tuesday, November 19th, when they will host the Texas Stars (AHL affiliate of the Dallas Stars) at Copps Coliseum at 7:30 p.m.
“MacAulay, 21, registered one assist in his professional debut with the Nailers on October 18th, and went on to record one more point, prior to recall. Stephen’s role with Wheeling was that of a defensive forward, as he was frequently used on the penalty kill, and to shut down the opposition’s top units.”
