NHL and NHLPA Meet Over Weekend, Blake Geoffrion, Hamilton Bulldogs, More

Happy Monday hockey fans!

Rough few days for the Montreal Canadiens' farm team, the Hamilton Bulldogs.

The Dogs lost their two weekend contests against the Syracuse Crunch, including a 4-1 defeat in front of an 18,000 person crowd at the Bell Centre.

On top of that, Blake Geoffrion was forced to have emergency surgery on Friday night after taking a skate blade to the head.  He is now out indefinitely

Hamilton currently sits 12th in the AHL's Western Conference and have played the fewest amount of games in the league.
