With six home games remaining, the San Francisco Bulls’ box office figures are right where president-coach Pat Curcio expected them to be.
The Bulls are averaging 4,226 fans per game in their inaugural season at the Cow Palace, which ranks 15th out of 23 teams in the ECHL. Attendance is less than 500 fans below the league average and Curcio considers it a victory.
“Our goal was to average between 3,000 and 3,500 per game and we’ve exceeded that,” Curcio said. Read More
With the trade deadline looming, the San Francisco Bulls are looking to wheel and deal to add size and blue line depth to the roster for the last 13 games of the season.
The Bulls acquired scoring punch with the addition of Yanni Gourde, Tristan King and Bryan Cameron, but the team is lacking physicality in the wake of Kris Belan’s call up to the AHL last week. Read More
San Francisco Bulls fans might not recognize their team when the squad returns to action at the Cow Palace on March 6.
The Bulls added finesse to the roster with the arrival of forward Yanni Gourde from the AHL Worcester Sharks, but the team is losing toughness with the call-up of Kris Belan to the Manchester Monarchs.
“We’ll be really skilled and probably less physical,” coach and president Pat Curcio said. Read More
DALY CITY — Pat Curcio expects to reach a decision regarding the San Francisco Bulls No. 1 goalie in the next 10 days, and channeling his inner Jim Harbaugh, he said he intends to go with the “hot hand.” In that case, the frontrunner appears to be Thomas Heemskerk.
Heemskerk turned away 41-of-44 shots in a 6-3 win over the Idaho Steelheads on Wednesday, stopped 22-of-22 in relief of Taylor Nelson on Saturday and then saved 26-of-28 in a 3-1 loss to the Stockton Thunder on Sunday. Read More

The new-look San Francisco Bulls kept things rolling by going up to Alaska and winning two out of three games against the first-place Aces over the weekend.

Pat Curcio’s five-player trade with the Gwinnett Gladiators is paying off faster than he expected.
The San Francisco Bulls (15-20-1-4) won two of three games against the Stockton Thunder (21-15-4-3) over the weekend after trading team captain Justin Bowers and top-scoring defenseman Sacha Guimond, playing the gritty style of hockey that Curcio envisioned when he executed the deal. Read More
