In June, the Bulldogs announced a three-year extension of the team’s partnership with the Jr. Bulldogs. As part of the agreement, the Bulldogs continue to lend their logo and colours to the Jr. Bulldogs and support the minor hockey organization by hosting community practices and providing player and coaching mentorships throughout the year.  The partnership also offers Jr. Bulldogs players discounts on Reebok / CCM hockey equipment.

The Jr. Bulldogs play out of the Mohawk 4 Ice Centre and currently have over 150 ‘AAA’ players within the association. As host of the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs Reebok Classic, the association brings more than 110 teams to Hamilton annually.
