Just a day after being swept from the postseason, the Hamilton Bulldogs announced their individual player awards for the 2003-04 campaign. A total of 5 players won or split 6 individual awards, ranging from top defenceman, to MVP, to the local "Hometown Hero" award.

 

The first award is the team's Most Valuable Player Award, as voted on by the players themselves. The winner: Benoit Gratton, despite playing just 50 games, scoring 51 points in that span. He was also in the AHL All-Star Classic, tallying a goal and 2 assists.

The second award to be announced was the "Tim Horton's Award," not surprisingly awarded to the Bulldogs' best defenceman, as voted on by the media. This season, there were a pair of recipients: Francois Beauchemin and Patrick Traverse. Beauchemin has 36 points in 77 games, while Traverse had 26 in 80 respectively.
