Bulldogs to host preseason tournament


By Josh Howald

The Nichol Insurance Kincardine Bulldogs will once again host a preseason tournament at the Davidson Centre in Kincardine to prepare for the 2015-16 Western Junior C League hockey season.

This year, the Bulldogs will be joined by three other Junior C teams on Sunday, Aug. 30. The Port Stanley Sailors and the Dorchester Dolphins of the Southern Ontario Junior Hockey League will be in town, as will the Western League's Wingham Ironmen. Each team will play twice, but not against the other team from their own league.

The action begins at 11:30 a.m. with the Bulldogs taking on Dorchester. At 1:15 p.m., Port Stanley will face Wingham, followed by a 3:30 p.m. game between Wingham and Dorchester. The final game of the day will see the Bulldogs take on Port Stanley at 5:15 p.m.

The exhibition games will give the teams a chance to take a look at prospective players in game situations.

The 2015-16 Western Junior C League regular season schedule has yet to be released.
