Calgary minor hockey product Jared Wilson has committed to play for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in the B.C. Hockey League next season.

Calgary minor hockey product Jared Wilson has committed to play for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in the B.C. Hockey League next season.

Wilson, born in 1994,  is a six-foot-one, 175-pound left-handed defenseman. He comes to the Bulldogs’ organization from the Calgary Royals Midget AAA program where he led the Royals in scoring (12-20-32 in 34 games) and penalty minutes (70 PIM).

Moreover, Wilson was the league’s top scoring defenseman and was his team’s alternate captain.

“We are very excited that Jared and his family decided to commit to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs over the other teams that were pursuing him,” said head coach Kevin Willison.

“Jared is a competitor with tremendous upside who can also contribute offensively. He comes from a great family and will be a great addition to the Bulldogs’ lineup.”

Wilson and his father visited Port Alberni in early March and had the opportunity to experience “Pack The Plex” night.

“The Bulldogs have the best fans in the league which I got a taste of at the Pack The Plex game,” said Wilson.

“It is very impressive that the organization is consistantly developing players to the next level. I look forward to working with the coaching staff and the team to win a championship in the coming years.”

Wilson will continue to train in Calgary during the off-season and will join the team for main training camp in mid-August.
