The American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, the Hamilton Bulldogs defend the ice at Copps Coliseum against the Toronto Marlies in their first home game of the 2012–13 season. Winners of the Calder Cup in 2007, the team looks to get back on track after a disappointing 34–35–2–5 campaign in 2011–12 with contributions from young winger Aaron Palushaj, who skated his way to 15 goals, 20 assists, and countless lightning-fast water breaks in 35 appearances last season before debuting in the NHL. On defence, goaltender Cedrick Desjardins returns after leading the AHL with a .932 save percentage and an average of 2.11 goals allowed each game, third in the league. Known as the Dog Pound to diehard fans, Copps Coliseum is the home of team mascot Bruiser the Bulldog, who leads legions of red-and-blue-clad supporters to support the team with thunderous howls, menacing growls, and puppy-eyed pleas for food from the concession stand.
