Adam Chapman - A-B Titans - 6'1" - 200 lbs. turns 20 yrs. Jan. 8th 2014

RW's :
Louick Marcotte - Val d'or -6'0" -190 lbs. turns 20 yrs. Jan. 7th 2014
Marcus Hinds - Blainville -6'2" - 188 lbs. turns 20 yrs. Jan.31st 2014

LW's :
Jack Nevins - Charlotteville - 6'2" - 205 lbs. already 20yrs.
Ross Johnston - Victoriaville - 6'5" - 224 lbs. turns 20 yrs. Feb. 18th 2014

My choices for character players that could be Hamilton Bulldogs this season.
Louick Marcotte* actually is at the top of my list, then Adam Chapman* as the faceoff ace center. It's a tough call between Jack Nevins* and Ross Johnston for the LW position, but that's a really special 4th line in case of injuries and they can move up to any line the coach needs them. Team players all of them and they won't cost draft picks or prospects to sign them.

Interesting list. Just to note though, those turning 20 in 2014 can't be signed until after this season. It goes by calendar year.

Having said that, I don't see much use for Nevins. Having seen his first couple of years in junior, he is essentially a second rate goon. He doesn't want the puck as it just embarrasses him. I didn't see him this year, so maybe he has improved. But essentially I remember him as a charging machine.
