Bulldogs go to Wichita for goaltender


The Hamilton Bulldogs have recalled goalie Peter Delmas from the Wichita Thunder of the Central Hockey League.

Delmas, 20, played in two games with the Bulldogs this season earning a record of 1-0-1 with a 1.92 goals-against-average and a .933 save percentage. In five games with Wichita this year, Delmas has a 0-3 -1 record along with a 4.85 goals-against-average and 0.836 save percentage.

Last season, the 6-foot-3, 183-pound goaltender split the season between the Quebec Remparts and Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The native of Bedford, N.S., had a 15-9-0 record with a 3.15 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage with the Remparts and a 5-7-0 record with a 3.42 GAA and a .895 save percentage.

Delmas was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round, 61st overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and was signed as a free agent by Hamilton on Oct. 14, 2010.

On Tuesday night, Hamilton’s netminder Curtis Sanford appeared to injure himself early in the Bulldogs 5-3 loss to the Chicago Wolves.

The Bulldogs play their final game of 2010 Thursday (Dec. 30) at 7 p.m. when they welcome the Lake Erie Monsters to Copps Coliseum. All regular season Hamilton Bulldogs broadcasts on AM 820 CHAM will begin with a pre-game show 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
