Prospect playoff round-up: Fulcher’s Bulldogs earn 2-and-1 record in Memorial Cup round robin play

At the Mastercard Memorial Cup, Kaden Fulcher stopped 33 of 35 shots as his Hamilton Bulldogs won a 3-2 decision over the Laval Titan.

According to the Memorial Cup website’s recap, Hamilton and Laval are both own 2-and-1 records during the tournament’s round robin play, which means that the teams’ fates–heading right to the tournament championship game or playing in Friday’s tiebreaker–depend on the outcome of Wednesday’s game:

A Swift Current win on Wednesday would push the Bulldogs into the Championship Final. If Regina comes out on top, Acadie-Bathurst will gain entry.

“We’ll have to see what happens tomorrow night,” said Hamilton goaltender Kaden Fulcher who made 33 saves in the win. “Getting a couple days off is going to be massive for the boys to regroup and re-energize and in that sense it was a big win for us.”

The Memorial Cup’s website also posted a highlight clip, a post-game clip in which Fulcher appears, coach John Gruden’s post-game comments, Sportsnet’s RJ Broadhead and Sam Cosentino’s takes on the game and Sportsnet’s panel’s commentary as well.
