Alberni Bulldogs make moves before doubleheader

The Alberni Bulldogs added a player and subtracted another before this weekend's doubleheader against Surrey and Langley.

Bulldog’s Brandon Hall

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have made a small flurry of player moves.

The Bulldogs acquired Walker Hyland, a five foot 11 inch, 180-pound defenseman, from the Texas Tornadoes of the NAHL. Hyland played 57 games with the Tornadoes last season, notching 12 goals, 23 assists and 99 penalty minutes, and was in the lineup with the  Bulldogs against Powell River last Friday.

Bulldogs goalie Adam Todd was recalled by the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL. He’s been replaced by Penticton’s Adam Harris, who played with the Quesnel Millionaires of the BCHL.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were at work in last week’s BCHL affiliate draft.

The team drafted Chase Lang, a five foot 11 inch tall, 180-pound forward, from the North Island Silvertips. They also drafted Alec Dillon, a six foot one inch tall, 160-pound goalie, from the  South Island Thunderbirds of the B.C. Major Midget League.

With additions come subtractions though. The Bulldogs have released Steven Saretsky.

ICE CHIPS… The 3-3 Bulldogs play a road doubleheader this weekend. They first face the 4-1 Surrey Eagles at the South Surrey Arena  on Friday. And on Saturday, they face the 2-5 Langley Rivermen at the Langley Events Centre. The Bulldogs lost 4-1 to the Powell River Kings last Friday and played the Cowichan Valley Capitals to a 5-5 tie on Saturday.
