Michael McLeod had a goal, -2, 8 shots, and a 48.28 FO% across 2 games for Mississauga. His goal came with 1:37 left in regulation against Erie on Sunday to tie the game up. Mississagua ended up dropping the other point in the shootout.

Marian Studenic was a -1 with 7 shots in 3 games for Hamilton last week. The 2017-18 season continues to be a streaky affair for the Slovakian winger. He started the season with no points in his first 5 games, went on to have 36 points in his next 35 games, and now has 1 point in his last 8 games. His shots per game rate has remained fairly steady with it at 3.00 during the 2 slumps and 2.78 during his hot streak. While he’s not one of the “go to guys” on a stacked Hamilton squad, he’s still retained an important secondary scoring and special teams role, often doing the little things to help the team. Tim Bolen of CHCH has this interview with Studenic and Bulldogs GM Steve Staios which offers some insight into life off the ice as he adjusts to Canada, what the Bulldogs think of him, and what players Studenic looked up to growing up.

Evan Cormier made 29 saves on 33 shots in an overtime loss to Guelph on Friday. The following night he made 23 saves on 26 shots in an overtime loss to Windsor.
