Hamilton brothers looking for a meeting

Brent Burns’ injury opened a position in San Jose Sharks' team earlier on Monday on road against Detroit Red Wings. Instead, Freddie Hamilton was tucked and made his National Hockey League debut in Sharks' 1 - 0 win. With only 3 matches on the fixture that night, there was a huge attention given to that match as Sharks ameliorated to 8 – 0 - 1. One Boston area viewer had a very keen interest than others.

After his team’s practice session earlier on Tuesday, Dougie Hamilton, Boston Bruins defenseman, told that he did not watch. After a pause, Hamilton said that he watched with a smile on his face. He added that He is not a bad brother.

When the Sharks confront Bruins at TD Garden on Thursday, Dougie Hamilton, who is 18 months younger, would not require a TV to watch his older brother. Brent’s injury status must continue to hold Freddie in the team, and barring a team juggle by Claude Julien, the Bruins coach, Dougie would also play.

Should the pair meet, Unibet (sports bet website) reckons te younger brother's team would win relatively easily.

After Sharks' morning skate Thursday, Freddie told that it was a bit weird. This is his 2nd match and getting to play against his brother, not only this is quite awesome that they are both in the National Hockey League already, but to get to play against him is pretty surreal right now.

Dougie Hamilton told that this is something they have been thinking about their whole lives. Now it is exciting that it is happening.
