Name: Rene Vydareny
Hometown: Bratislava, Slovakia
Acquired: from Vancouver March 9, 2004 for Sylvain Blouin
2003-2004 Season Review : Vydareny was a deadline acquisition of GM Bob Gainey, as he picked him up from the Vancover Canucks farm system for tough guy Sylvain Blouin. Although he hasn’t played much with Hamilton this year, he has played in 15 games for the Dogs and has added a veteran presence to make up for the loss of Mike Komisarek and Karl Dykhuis.
