The Scouting Report
With 16:01 to play in the opening period of the San Francisco Bulls' first hockey contest—a home game with the Bakersfield Condors—Bulls forward Dean Ouellet slapped the puck into the back of the Condors' net, recording the first professional goal of his career and the first score in Bulls' franchise history. More than 40 games later, the Bulls have skated through more than half of its premiere season, continuing to build an identity as the newest member of the East Coast Hockey League. With 23 goals to go along with his season-opening strike, Ouellet joins leading scorer Peter Sivak in flummoxing opposing goalies with dizzying dekes, artful passes, and sudoku puzzles taped to the top of their net.
San Francisco Bulls
A minor-league affiliate of the NHL's San Jose Sharks, the San Francisco Bulls made their East Coast Hockey League debut in October 2012. On game days, crowds of as many as 11,000 fans flood the Cow Palace, the Bulls' home ice and the former stomping ground of the Sharks, who played in the arena for their first two seasons in the NHL. As the team looks to establish itself as a formidable ECHL presence, it gains inspiration from the Matadors the team's fiercely loyal booster club, and secret play calls encoded in the Cow Belles dance routines.
