HAMILTON, ONTARIO – Among 22 former Hamilton Bulldogs to participate in at least one game during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, forward Jarret Stoll emerged as the only ‘Dogs alumnus to win this season’s National Hockey League championship as his Los Angeles Kings clinched the final series against the New York Rangers – who featured four ‘Dogs alumni – in Game 5 on Friday evening.
Stoll recorded six points (three goals, three assists) and 18 penalty minutes in 26 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including two points (one goal, one assist) in the Final. He was a Bulldog during the 2002-2003 season, recording 54 points (21 goals, 33 assists) and 86 penalty minutes in 76 regular season games.
Of the four former Bulldogs on the Rangers, only Benoit Pouliot saw ice time during the playoffs. He recorded 10 points (five goals, five assists) and 26 penalty minutes in 25 games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including two goals and six penalty minutes in the Final. He participated in three regular season games with the Bulldogs during the 2009-2010 season, recording three points (one goal, two assists) and four penalty minutes.
Forward Danny Kristo, defenceman Danny Syvret and assistant coach Daniel Lacroix were the other Hamilton alumni with the Rangers during the playoff run. Kristo and Syvret were recalled by the Rangers following the end of their American Hockey League season with the Hartford Wolf Pack and didn’t play in any NHL playoff games. Kristo appeared in nine regular season contests with Hamilton at the end of the 2012-2013 season, recording three assists and two penalty minutes. Syvret skated in 62 regular season games with the Bulldogs in the 2005-2006 season, recording 20 assists and 38 penalty minutes. Lacroix spent the 2009-2010 season as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs. That season, Hamilton had a record 52-17-3-8.
In total, 22 former Bulldogs players participated in 243 games and represented nine different teams during this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs.
