Day 2 of Bulldogs Training Camp on Wednesday saw the three teams take part in scrimmages.
The morning scrimmage saw Team Black defeat Team White 4-2. Team Black was led by a couple of familiar names as Matthew Strome scored twice and Mackenzie Entwistle added three assists. Reilly Webb and 2016 6th round pick Derek Seugin scored for Team White.
Scrimmage 2 saw Team Black go up against Team Grey. Again Matthew Strome led Team White with three goals, but the hat-trick wasn’t nearly enough as Team Grey cruised to a 10-4 win. A couple of prospects form the 2016 Draft led the way for Team Grey as 10th round pick Dylan D’Agostino scored three times while 4th round pick Jake Murray had a goal and two assists.
Team Grey continued its offensive explosion in the third scrimmage as they beat Team White 13-8. Team Grey was led by a trio of hat-tricks from Will Bitten, Zack Jackson and 2nd round pick from the 2017 draft Arthur Kaliyev. The Bulldogs top pick in that draft Connor McMichael also scored a hat-trick for Team White.
Training Camp wraps up Thursday with the annual Black and Gold game at FirstOntario Centre at 10:30 am. For some of the prospects, it will be their last chance to make an impression on the Bulldogs management and coaching staff.
