Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs Awards 2019-2020
Submitted By Dianne Skirving on Sunday, September 6, 2020
The season of 2019-20 proved to be another remarkable year for the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs organization.  The Minor PeeWee Team finished in first place to win the SCTA League Championship while 4 Teams (Minor PeeWee, PeeWee, Minor Bantam and Bantam) qualified to play in the OMHA Semi-Final Series. Three of these Teams (Minor PeeWee, PeeWee and Minor Bantam) unfortunately due to Covid-19 had their OMHA Semi-Final Series cut short.  The Bantam Team won their semi-final series and were to advance to the Bantam AAA OMHA Championships of which they were the Host Centre.  

We unfortunately had to cancel our 2019-20 Annual HJB Awards Banquet due to Covid-19 and were hoping that we would be able to get together in a smaller group to give these awards out personally.  Restrictions by PHU prevented this from being arranged so the awards were hand delivered to all the recipients.  The Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs’ Board of Directors would like to take the time to thank all our HJB Players for their outstanding commitment, dedication and work ethic, both on and off the ice. Our HJB Coaching Staffs and our HJB Development Staff are to be commended for their painstaking efforts and the countless hours they commit and dedicate to the HJB Hockey Program. The HJB Board of Directors and the HJB Volunteers deserve many thanks for their support and effort this past season which greatly contributed to a smooth running and successful season. 


The Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs are thrilled to announce our 2019-20 Award Recipients and extend our heartfelt congratulations to this year’s recipients - your dedication to superior performance has resonated with all of the members of the HJB:
