BCHL: Alberni Valley Bulldogs deal veteran netminder

New opportunity awaits Colten Lancaster in SJHL

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have completed a trade with the Flin Flon Bombers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, dealing 1998-born goaltender Colten Lancaster in return for future considerations.

Lancaster joined the Bulldogs in a summer trade from the Merritt Centennials and made 12 appearances this season, compiling a record of 1-8-2 with a 3.87 goals-against average and .887 save-percentage.

“Colten is a great person and teammate who made a positive impact during his time in Port Alberni,” said Bulldogs head coach Matt Hughes. “As a 19-year-old, it’s important that he gets a chance to play often and establish himself in a starting role. He’s headed to a great opportunity with a very solid organization in Flin Flon and we wish him all the best for the remainder of the season and beyond.”

With this trade, the Bulldogs have created an opening between the pipes alongside John Hawthorne, who has posted a 7-7-2-1 record as a BCHL rookie. The team will make a corresponding roster move in the near future.
