A look into the world of the American Hockey League outside of just the normal game re-caps. Canada’s AHL teams hit hard by falling dollar By Teri Pecoskie | Hamilton Spectator In Hamilton and across Canada, American Hockey League teams are being burned by the drooping dollar. Bulldogs president Stephen Ostaszewicz says a dip in the loonie’s value — around 15 per cent since the team’s travel budget was set last June — has created “a significant headwind.” “All of our trips on the back end of the schedule, specifically the months of March and April, are U.S.-based,” he added. “It’s just another avenue that creates pressure on the business.” The Bulldogs — along with St. John’s IceCaps and Toronto Marlies, the league’s other Canadian franchises … Continue reading

AHL Read This: Bulldogs pass on Veterans, Support to Keep IceCaps, BriseBois on new Rules

A look into the world of the American Hockey League outside of just the normal game re-caps. Will Hamilton Bulldogs regret passing on high-scoring veterans? By Scott Radley | Hamilton Spectator The opening days of any hockey team’s training camp are always thick with optimism. Everything’s fresh and better. All slates are clean. Last year is in the past. So today it’s possible to believe many of the young men who will eventually be released from the Montreal Canadiens’ camp — which opens on Thursday — and handed a bus ticket to Hamilton will make this year different from the last three in which the Bulldogs missed the playoffs each time. Hopefully, that’s the case. But if it turns out they’re not yet quite ready for primetime … Continue reading

A look into the world of the American Hockey League outside of just the normal game re-caps. St. John’s could use an angel Brendan McCarthy Published on March 07, 2014 In the theatre business, they are known as angels. People who will back a particular production – either financially or with influence – when others are reluctant. Sometimes, money is the not-too-angelic motive, but in many cases, the backer simply believes in the product, profits be damned. When it comes to the future of the American Hockey League production known as the IceCaps, St. Johns is badly in need of an angel. We are almost a month removed from the AHL All-Star Classic at Mile One Centre, an event which was touted as an important showcase … Continue reading

Brandon Pirri Traded

A look into the world of the American Hockey League outside of just the normal game re-caps. Brandon Pirri traded by Blackhawks to Panthers BY MARK LAZERUS Staff Reporter March 2, 2014 7:56PM Less than a year ago, on draft day, Hawks general manager Stan Bowman was touting Brandon Pirri as his second-line center of the future. But on Sunday, Bowman traded Pirri to Florida for a third-round draft pick this June and a fifth-round pick in 2016. Pirri, the AHL’s leading scorer last season, had six goals and five assists in 28 games with the Hawks this season, but never showed the all-around game Joel Quenneville wanted to see from him. With highly skilled Teuvo Teravainen in the pipeline, Pirri — a restricted free agent … Continue reading
