HAMILTON, Ontario (AP)Anaheim Ducks first-round pick Mason McTavish switched Ontario Hockey League teams Sunday, moving from the Peterborough Petes to the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Selected third overall in July in the NHL draft, McTavish had two goals and an assist in nine games with the Ducks to open the season, and also had a goal and an assist for the San Diego Gulls in the American Hockey League.

Anaheim returned him to the junior Petes and he represented Canada in the canceled world junior championship. He had six goals and an assist in five games for Peterbourough, and three goals and two assists in two world junior games.

Hamilton is second in the East Division. Peterborough is last.
