Cedrick Desjardins was in the Hamilton nets for the first time in five games.  He stopped 33 of 36 shots.   The Bulldogs were outshot 14-3 in the first period.

Tyler Murovich, who was signed to a Professional Tryout Contract over the weekend, scored his first goal with the Bulldogs in his first game.  His power play goal tied the game midway through the second period.  Twelve seconds later the Heat scored the eventual game winner.

Mike Matczak, also on a PTC, recorded a goal and an assist for the Calgary Flames affiliate.  Ben Walter and  Tyler Ruegsegger also scored.

With ten regular members of the Bulldogs in Canadiens training camp, the team was forced to flesh out it’s roster with a combination of call-ups from the East Coast Hockey League and five players brought in on Professional Tryout Contracts.
