MONTREAL – The Hamilton Bulldogs, the Montreal Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, will play two games on the Bell Centre ice during the 2012-13 regular season. Under the direction of newly appointed head coach Sylvain Lefebvre, the Bulldogs will successively host the Syracuse Crunch, Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate, on November 9 and the Rochester Americans, Buffalo’s AHL farm team, on February 22, 2013.
The two games from the Bulldogs 2012-13 regular season schedule will give Montreal hockey fans an opportunity to see some of the organization’s best prospects. It will be the Bulldogs’ eighth and ninth contests at the Bell Centre in the history of the AHL franchise. The Bulldogs first ever match-up at the Bell Centre was played on March 18, 2007 when they faced the Syracuse Crunch, just a few weeks before the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate captured the first Calder Cup in franchise history. Carey Price, the Canadiens current netminder, was a member of that championship Bulldogs squad in 2006-07.

Family packages are available for as low as $99 and include four tickets in the reds, four hot dogs and four soft drinks.
