Zack Fitzgerald(14) Hamilton Bulldogs / Charlotte Checkers
Hamilton Bulldogs inked grizzly 7th year veteran defenseman Zack Fitzgerald(14) to an AHL contract for 2011/2012. He lead the league in penalty minutes with 311 in ’09/’10.
He’ll no doubt be called upon to protect some of the younger prospects in the Canadiens‘ system.
In the 2007/2008 season he did get a 1 game wink in an NHL game when he was signed by the Canucks for a couple of seasons. The last two years he’s been signed with Carolina Hurricanes.
Fitzgerald was a 3rd round pick in 2003 (#88 overall) by St. Louis and played for two years with their minor league affiliates in Peoria and Alaska.
