Logan Morrison set a franchise record in the Hamilton Bulldogs' fight-filled OT loss to the Mississauga Steelheads in front of 8,732 screaming children.

Logan Morrison finished with a pair of helpers to surpass Matt Strome as the Bulldogs’ all-time assists leader with 133 in his career, as Hamilton lost 5-4 in overtime to the Mississauga Steelheads.

Wednesday’s fight-filled matinee was played in front of 8,732 screaming children in the School Day Game.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 3-1 lead in a penalty-heavy first period that featured twelve infractions, including two check to the head penalties called on the Steelheads. The latter incident ignited both benches and led to multiple fights and game misconducts.

The second period featured more of the same, and by the midway point of the third period, Hamilton was left with just six skaters on their bench.

The clubs combined for 88 minutes in penalties. Mississauga went 1-for-7 with the man advantage, while Hamilton went 2-for-5.

With the score even at four, Mississauga won the face-off to start overtime, and on the ensuing possession, James Hardie completed his hattrick to send the Steelhawks to a 5-4 win.

The Bulldogs return to the ice this Saturday for the annual Teddy Toss Game against the Windsor Spitfires. Puck drop at FirstOntario Centre is scheduled for 4 p.m.
