Bulldogs head coach remains in hospital
The Hamilton Bulldogs say head coach Dave Matsos is “resting comfortably” at a Barrie, Ont., hospital a day after collapsing on the team bench Saturday in the final seconds of an Ontario Hockey League game against the Barrie Colts. He was immediately attended to by on-site paramedics and taken to hospital to undergo tests. The team said in a statement Sunday that Matsos, 44, will have further tests done and “he is doing well and in good spirits.” Matsos is behind the Bulldogs’ bench for a second year after serving as assistant coach in 2017-18. He is in his ninth season coaching in the OHL after spending time with the Windsor Spitfires and Sudbury Wolves. Hamilton was leading 4-2 when the game was called with less than 30 seconds to play. The Bulldogs were awarded the victory.
