Joe Stejskal, a graduate of Harvard University’s hockey programme, played the first nine games of the season with the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers before being recalled on November 4th. He played in only four of the ten games the Bulldogs played while he was in their camp.
Berger, a native of Switzerland, was a free agent signing following a 29 goal season in his final junior year at Oshawa. Despite being possessed with a hard shot, he has not been able to find the scoring range in professional hockey.
The Bulldogs continue to carry three goaltenders, one of whom will likely be eventually sent to Wheeling. Also forward Stefan Chaput was called up from Wheeling a week ago.
