The Hamilton Bulldogs have reached an affiliation agreement with the Ancaster Avalanche of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League.
With the agreement, the Ontario Hockey League’s Bulldogs (last season’s Belleville Bulls) can assign affiliated young players to develop with the Junior B team.
The Avalanche club was established in 2013 after the Stoney Creek Warriors relocated to Ancaster. In two seasons in the GOJHL, the Avalanche has compiled a record of 53-35-10. The team’s home rink is the Morgan Firestone Arena.
Hamilton begins the regular season Sept. 25 in London against the Knights. The home opener is set for Sept. 26 against the Oshawa Generals.
