Claeys gets P.O.W Honourable Mention, Dogs vs Caps highlights, GoFundMe for Matt Hutchinson

Congrats to Bulldogs goalie Brody Claeys, who picked up an Honourable Mention in the BCHL Player of the Week selection this week!

A couple highlight reel stops from Brody can be viewed by checking out the video below.

If you haven't yet heard the terribly sad news from earlier this week, former Bulldog Matt Hutchison tragically lost his life Sunday in New York. 

If you would like to help his family with the memorial, please click this link for further details.

Matt was signed by the Bulldogs in June of 2009. While he didn't crack the Bulldogs game night roster and was subsequently released that September, a true testament to his character is illustrated in how he dealt with what was no doubt a disheartening set back. He didn't get deterred or pack it in like some do - he refused to quit.

Matt ended up playing with the OCN Blizzard of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and Quesnel, Coquitlam and Chilliwack of the BCHL before moving on to the State University of New York at Geneseo where he was in his fourth year playing hockey and earning his degree. 

If it wasn't enough being a student athlete - which is an incredibly hard thing to do on a day to day basis, Matt was also a Volunteer Fire Fighter. The world lost a good one, and Matt was certainly taken from it much too soon.
