Hamilton Bulldogs would be transfered to Laval (2013)

I'll put it as rumor

EXCLUSIVE TVA Sports - Hamilton Bulldogs, a subsidiary of Canadians in the American League, moving to Laval.

Depending on what TVA Sports has learned from sources familiar with the matter, the farm team of Canadians would be transferred as early as the summer of 2013.

The Montreal Canadiens and imitate their old rivals in Toronto and could set up their branch a few miles, making it more efficient and, above all, cheaper multiple trips of their players, in one way or the other.

In Hamilton until 2013

According to the Vice-President, Communications of the Habs, Donald Beauchanp, the contract between the organization with his club and school ends at the end of the 2012-2013 season, which coincides with the maturity of the contract with Copps Coliseum in Hamilton.

Complex to build

In Laval, the Bulldogs would move into the future "sports and cultural complex" whose erection was announced in 2009, at the corner of boulevard Du Souvenir Boulevard and Daniel Johnson.

The City of Laval declined to comment. The press of Gilles Vaillancourt, Jean-Maurice Duddin, declined interview requests but did not deny the news.

The Bulldogs since 2002 belong to the businessman Michael Andlauer, a minority shareholder of the Habs. Mr. Andlauer, who owns a residence and a business in Laval, did not return our calls.

More details to come.
