Bulldogs push recall button for goalie

Goaltender Peter Delmas has been recalled by the Hamilton Bulldogs from the East Coast Hockey League’s Wheeling Nailers.

Delmas, 21, has played in one game for Wheeling this season where he recorded a win while making 21 saves. Last season, the Bedford, Nova Scotia native played in two games with the American Hockey League’s Bulldogs, posting a 1-0-1 record, a 1.92 goals against average and a .933 save percentage. In 24 games with the Nailers in 2010-11, Delmas recorded 15 wins, six losses and two overtime losses, a 2.03 goals against average and a .928 save percentage.

In the ECHL’s 2011 Kelly Cup Playoffs, Delmas posted an 8-5-1 record, a 3.13 goals against average and a .903 save percentage playing in 15 of Wheeling’s 17 post-season games before the Wheelers were eliminated in six games by the Kalamazoo Wings in the Eastern Conference finals. The 6’2’’, 190-pound goaltender finished the post season ranked second in the league in playoff games (15) and saves (391), and third in wins (8).

The left-handed-catching netminder played in 149 career regular season games in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) between 2006 and 2010 with Lewiston MAINEiacs, Quebec Remparts and Halifax Mooseheads.

The Hamilton Bulldogs face the Abbotsford Heat for a rematch on Tuesday, Nov. 1st at 7:30 p.m. at Copps Coliseum.
