HAMILTON, ONT. – Hamilton Bulldogs head coach and general manager George Burnett announced today that prospect MacKenzie Entwistle has committed to the Bulldogs.
Entwistle was the ‘Dogs third pick (second round, 40th overall) in the 2015 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection.
“We’re pleased to confirm MacKenzie has committed to the Bulldogs organization,” said Burnett. “He’s a talented, versatile forward coming from a winning program and we look forward to his progression as a player and person as part of our team for the next few seasons.”
