Commodore released from P.T.O. by Bulldogs

The Hamilton Bulldogs announced Wednesday they have released veteran defenseman Mike Commodore from his Professional Try-Out Contract with the team.

The 33-year-old has played for seven teams over 11 NHL seasons, including the 2011-12 campaign, which he split between the Detroit Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning.

In 17 games with the Bulldogs, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, Commodore registered two assists and 26 penalty minutes. He was invited to Canadiens training camp last week, where he said his wish was to "Come here, move my feet, play well in the intersquad scrimmage and see where it goes."

Now a free agent, Commodore has a wealth of hockey experience, having won the Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006 and come within one game of another Cup title while with the Calgary Flames in 2004.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
