On his return, Oulette said, “I’m happy to be returning. I want to have a good season, since I had a great time with the team and in the city last year. I’m excited to be back playing with Scotty (Langdon), Kris (Belan) and Dylan (King) if I don’t make Worcester.”

He’s a big guy standing 6-foot, 2-inches tall and weighing in at 190-pounds. “I’m excited to get out there and play for Pat and the Bulls fans,” said Perdicaro. “After talking to Pat this summer, the Bulls seemed like the right fit. I’m ready to go and win some games. I’ve never played in a big city, mostly small towns. But coming from New York and Florida, it won’t be too big of an adjustment.”
Paquette, 23, was a third-round draft pick, 64th overall, of the Atlanta Thrashers in 2008. last season he split the season between the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League and the ECHL-champion Reading Royals. The 6-foot, 210-pound Montreal, Quebec native has played in six AHL games between the Chicago Wolves and Hershey. Paquette had 55 points (28 goals, 27 assists) and 466 penalty minutes in 131 career ECHL games with the Gwinnett Gladiators, South Carolina Stingrays, Utah Grizzlies, Chicago Express and Reading.
“Anthony brings skill and a physical style to our lineup,” said SF Bulls President and Head Coach Pat Curcio. “Last year he was a top player in the CHL and we are confident he’ll be a top player in the ECHL. We are excited to have Danick, who has the potential to get to the next level and the NHL. He’s a skillful power forward, who will fit well on our team this season.”
