In our system we have all those first and second & 3rd round picks from the last two years that should be ready to play in Hamilton this year with the exception of McCarron who I think needs another year in London. He had a slow start last fall just adjusting to the OHL style of play but did have a solid second half and playoff. However, I think he needs to continue his development in London one more year.

It is also time for those players who are playing in Europe to come over here and learn the NA style of game in the smaller rink. They need to have time to adjust to the ice and the North American Pro game. Very few can just move straight to the NHL. Those who are not willing to do that should be traded to another team.

We've signed forward T.J Hensick for Hamilton. http://theahl.com/mobile/?t=mobile_player_wide&playerId=2067&season_id=&team_id=315&bblh=other

Seems like a good signing. Hamilton desperately needs scoring and this guy should help a lot.

Also, Blunden and Tarnasky have both signed deals with other teams.

Kootenay Ice GM Jeff Chynoweth discussed prospect Tim Bozon at the CHL import draft this week.

"Tim Bozon has made, so far, a remarkable recovery & all indications lead to him continuing his hockey career in the fall. In speaking with the Montreal Canadiens, the plan is for him to play pro hockey next year."

Mods, if you feel this player deserves his own thread, then please move it there. :)

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Bulldogs have signed defenceman Bobby Shea to a one-year, two-way American Hockey League / ECHL contract for the 2014-2015 season.
