The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have completed a trade with the West Kelowna Warriors, sending 2000-born defenceman Ryan Novecosky to the Okanagan club in return for future considerations.
Novecosky joined the Bulldogs at the beginning of the 2018/19 season and played in 52 regular season games, scoring two goals and adding eight assists along with 25 penalty minutes. He also suited up in all four games of the team’s first round playoff series against the Victoria Grizzlies.
“Ryan is a tremendous young man who will have an increased opportunity to develop in West Kelowna,” says Bulldogs head coach Joe Martin. “We’d like to thank him for his contributions and wish him well with the Warriors.”
The Bulldogs will start their regular season schedule the same way they ended their pre-season, with two away games in Powell River. Sept. 6–7. They play Nanaimo Clippers on Friday, Sept. 13 at Frank Crane Arena, then their home opener on Saturday, Sept. 14.
