Bulldogs to play at the Bell Centre in November
MONTREAL – The Hamilton Bulldogs, the Montreal Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, will play host to the Binghamton Senators at the Bell Centre on Friday, November 18, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. This event is a presentation of evenko. It will be the Bulldogs’ seventh game at the Bell Centre in team history, the fourth time against Binghamton.
Tickets, starting from $10, will be available as of Saturday, October 1 at 12 p.m., at the Bell Center Box Office, by phone at (514) 790-2525 or 1-877-668-8269, or at www.evenko.ca.
The Bulldogs’ roster, led by former Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) coach Clément Jodoin, will feature some of the Canadiens’ top-rated prospects just a few strides away from the NHL. The Bulldogs opened their training camp on Tuesday, September 27 at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard. The camp will continue with two pre-season contests against the Binghamton Senators, providing Canadiens’ fans across the province with an excellent opportunity to see the Canadiens promising young players in action in QMJHL local markets. The games will be played on Friday, September 30 at 7:30 p.m. at Colisée Desjardins in Victoriaville and on Saturday, October 1 at 7 p.m. at Centre Marcel-Dionne in Drummondville.
More than 13,200 fans attended the first Bulldogs’ game of the 2010-11 season at the Bell Centre on November 5 when they hosted Binghamton. More than 14,800 fans attended the second match on February 25, 2011, which saw the Bulldogs edge the Adirondack Phantoms 4-1.
Several young prospects who participated in the Canadiens’ training camp will be present, including Gabriel Dumont, Philippe Lefebvre, Dany Massé and Frédéric St-Denis.
The Bulldogs’ first game at the Bell Centre was held on March 18, 2007, against the Syracuse Crunch, weeks before the first Calder Cup championship in franchise history.
