The Hamilton Bulldogs Trade Trent Fox
— Dhiren Mahiban (@dcmahiban) January 10, 2017
The Hamilton Bulldogs have traded forward Trent Fox to the Mississauga Steelheads. Mahiban has accurately called a few trades during the trade deadline, specifically the Generals’ Cirelli trade with more specifics than most, so I’m trusting his tweet. The Bulldogs receive a fifth round selection in 2017, a fourth round selection in 2019 and a third round selection in 2020.
Fox came to the organization when he was traded to the Belleville Bulls from the Erie Otters, along with Jesse Saban. He was brought into the organization by Burnett & Branch for his size, versatility and offensive potential. Fox was easily the most consistent offensive tool of the Hamilton Bulldogs in their inaugural season, originally on the top line beside Stephen Harper and Mason Marchment. Following their departure, Fox found success with Michael Cramarossa. He finished out the season as the team’s top scorer with 28 goals.
Fox attended the 2015 Traverse City NHL Prospect Tournament playing with the St. Louis Blues development roster. Fox will forever go down in Bulldogs history as the first player to score on home ice for the Hamilton Bulldogs, against the Oshawa Generals.
This move will make space for Hamilton’s youth to grow into a larger role with the team.
