While their Maple Leafs have struggled to make the NHL playoffs in recent years, the Toronto Bulldogs continue their domination at the novice level.
The pint-sized hockey players buzzed around in their yellow and blue jerseys Sunday and stung the Detroit Red Wings 4-0 in the championship gold-medal game of the 23rd annual Brick Invitational Super Novice Hockey Tournament.
It was the Bulldogs’ second consecutive win at the 14-team tournament held at the West Edmonton Mall Ice Palace. The Bulldogs have shown their dominance in previous years, but tournament chair Craig Styles said the youngsters raised the bar several notches this summer.
“This year’s Bulldog team was at a level above the others. They had two solid scoring lines, a shutdown third line and defence that would not let the puck get to the net,” Styles said as the tournament closed.
The Bulldogs, who went 6-0 in tournament play and 2-0 in the playoffs.

We have been involved with the Toronto Bulldogs Hockey Club for 2 years Our core objectives as coaches was to further develop the fundamentals of hockey while incorporating team play, ensure the player's experience is positive both on and off the ice, sportsmanship towards all participants, enjoyment for the game and build lasting relations. . This 2003 Toronto Bulldogs Team was very successful. Season started in mid April and ended in mid June. The team entered 4 tournaments playing over 25 games capturing 2 Championship titles. It has been a great opportunity for all the players to be part of this spring elite team. The players were all excited and proud to wear the jersey.
Looking forward to next season,
Coaches – 2003 Toronto Bulldogs
I have been involved as the coach of the 2002 Toronto Bulldogs since 2009. The program has included practices, tournaments, exhibition games, barbeques, pool parties, travel and loads of fun for the players and families. The program goal is to have fun, work hard, make friends and learn a bit more about the game. We generally do 4 or 5 tournaments and 7 or 8 practices. Spring hockey allows for players from all over the GTHL, OMHA and Alliance to play together and make new friends outside of your winter team zone. The program starts with tryouts in the fall, with the spring season starting late April and ends 6 weeks later in early to mid June allowing players to do the summer sports. The players love the Bulldogs jerseys and attire and the organization makes it easy for us to operate by organizing everything. If you get the chance to coach or help out with Spring Hockey with your kids, jump at it. All three of my kids have played on the Bulldogs and have great memories. We have included some pictures from the years, enjoy.
The 1999 Girls Bulldogs were made up of about six 1999 and the rest 2000 or 2001. It was the first year the Bulldogs had any girl's teams. The program was simply to introduce girls to spring hockey. We went into 3 tournaments (including 1 travel) last year and practiced together about 6 times. The goal is to have girls playing with different players from their winter season and to make new friends. We focused on team play and individual skills development. Next year, I will be looking for 2000 and 2001 girls to do something similar. If you are interested, please contact Lily.
A handful of the 99 Brick Bulldogs, their Brick coach Dave D'Amizzio, and several friends they've made along the way to Peewee hockey, assembled in the spring of 2011 to play in four tournaments over an eight week span. They had a memorable spring hockey season, winning a tourney, making it to the final of another, improving throughout, and further cementing friendships that started on the Bulldogs several years ago. The 99 Bulldogs would like to thank the Lamacchia's for again providing them with the opportunity to play under their Bulldogs banner this past spring, and for continuing to run a model organization when it comes to spring hockey opportunities"
