Charles Hudon - Leads AHL Rookie Scoring Race

Charles Hudon – Leads AHL Rookie Scoring Race

Rookie Charles Hudon scored a power play overtime goal as the Hamilton Bulldogs came from behind a 3-1 first period deficit to beat the Lake Erie Monsters 4-3 Saturday night at First Ontario Centre.

The Monsters got goals from Reid Petryk, Troy Bourke and Michael Schumacher before the game was fifteen minutes old. From that point the Bulldogs shut Lake Erie down en route to outshooting them 45-22 in the game.

Along with Hudon’s overtime winner, linemate Christian Thomas, Jacob de la Rose and Daniel Carr scored for the Bulldogs. Thomas also had an assist on the game winning goal.   Defenseman Nathan Beaulieu recorded two assists.

Joey MacDonald got the start in goal for Hamilton for the first time in seven games and stopped 19 of 22 shots. He faced only eleven in the second, third and overtime periods.

Notes –

….This was Hudon’s second overtime game-winning goal of the season.

…With 20, including 7 goals and 14 assists, Hudon now has a three point lead in the AHL rookie scoring race ahead of St. John’s forward Chase Balisy and Providence’s David Pastrnak.  Pastrnak was called up by the Bruins earlier this week.    Hudon is one goal behind the rookie goalscoring leader.  He is also the Bulldogs leading scorer by four points over T.J. Hensick.

….After a weekend split against the Monsters, the Bulldogs are back at .500 for their season (9-9-2).

….Healthy scratches for the Bulldogs were forwards Connor Crisp, Maxime Macenauer and defenseman Joe Finley.
