Bulldogs Season Wrap Up
With two losses last weekend, including a heart-breaker in overtime, the Carruthers Nicol Kincardine Bulldogs season came to an end at the hands of the Walkerton Hawks.
Saturday night, the Dogs suffered a gut-wrenching 3-2 overtime loss in game three. After an exciting, back and forth battle, Tanner Simpson tied the game with just two minutes remaining. The Bulldogs carried much of the pl...ay in overtime, but after a missed call on a (seemingly obvious) penalty, the Hawks scored the winner on a goal that appeared to have been scored after the net had been dislodged. A truly disappointing loss that left the Dogs down three games to none coming home for game four on Sunday afternoon.
In front of the largest crowd of the season, the Bulldogs had a daunting task ahead of them. Down three games, goaltender Max Veilleux was thrown into the spotlight after Gatlin Burt had been suspended the night before. Having not seen game action in close to two months, Veilleux had his hands full. Penalty trouble again put the home team at a disadvantage, and were never really able to recover from two Hawk power play goals in the first ten minutes. The Hawks added three goals in the second, and the game and season ended for the Bulldogs with a 6-2 defeat.
Many positives to show, however, after finishing solidly in second place, and losing two of the games in the final in overtime - two games that could have easily swung the other way. Gatlin Burt had another stellar year in goal in his final junior campaign, and the emergence of Max Veilleux, who went 10-1 in the regular season offered the Bulldogs a glimpse of things to come for next year. The combination of Brett Catto and Cody Britton along with late-season additions Mike Sharpe and Jordan Cale and the success of the infamous 'Lucknow Line' provided both exciting hockey as well as a great foundation to start with looking forward.
With our hockey over for the year, work continues for the Bulldog organization in preparation for next year. We'll keep you updated on future Bulldog events. The first being the upcoming Indoor Beach Volleyball Tournament scheduled for 02 to 04 May.
The Bulldog organization is always looking for volunteers as well - if you are interested in helping out, even if it's only occasionally, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of the entire Carruthers Nicol Kincardine Bulldog Organization, we'd like to extend sincere appreciation to all of our sponsors and fans for making this an exciting year of Junior C Hockey - it wouldn't be possible without you!

Bulldogs On The Radio
The just completed Western Junior C Hockey League season was highlighted by the record breaking performance of Wingham Ironmen centre Aaron Armstrong.
Armstrong finished the season with 50 goals and 74 assists for a new league record, 124 points. The old mark was 113 points set by Hanover Baron Dave Hopkins in 1986-87, a mark that stood up for 26 years.
Armstrong, who hails from Teeswater, is also just the second Western Junior C player to score 50 goals.
The OHA Junior C player of the year for 2011-12 captained the Ironmen to a solid-fourth place finish and the team challenged for third all year.
It should come as no surprise that the sniper would also dominate the post-season awards.
In addition to being named the League’s Top Scorer, Armstrong was a unanimous choice as the League’s Most Valuable Player.
He was also named the league’s Most Sportsmanlike Player with just 24 penalty minutes.
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Walkerton Hawks Connor Patton finished the season with 19 goals, including seven on the power play, and 28 assists for 47 points in helping the Hawks finish first for the fifth year in a row.
Patton’s teammate in Walkerton, Jordan Turcotte, was named the league’s top blue liner. Turcotte had 9 goals and 12 assists in 25 games for Walkerton.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Matt Mullin, who guided the Mount Forest Patriots this season, was named Coach of the Year.
Walkerton goaltenders Jeff Flagler League Leading 2.60) and Justin Hammond (3.89) combined to have the league’s lowest goals against average. Walkerton gave up just 93 goals this year, 30 fewer than the next closest team.
Walkerton also takes the trophy for being the Regular Season Champions.
The awards will be handed out at the home games of the recipients.
