The final Hamilton Bulldogs decision will involve goaltending. Cedrick Desjardins is expected to be number one after returning to the Canadiens organization as an unrestricted free agent. Czech-born/Swiss citizen Robert Mayer has been a backup in Hamilton the last two seasons after starting his professional career in Cincinnati. Peter Delmas has spent most of the last two seasons with Wheeling in the ECHL.
