BCHL: Hayduk gone from Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ bench

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have not renewed assistant GM/ coach Adam Hayduk's contract. Equipment manager Damon Pugerude is also gone.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have opted not to renew assistant general manager/ coach Adam Hayduk’s contract.

Hayduk was with the team for five years.

“In hockey and in business you are forced to make tough decisions in the long-term interests of the team,” Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society president Ron Paulson said in a press release.

“We wish Adam all the very best as he pursues new opportunities in the hockey world.”

Athletic trainer Damon Pugerude, whose contract was up this year, will also not return as the Bulldogs opted not to renew his contract. JT Ward will join the team in August and take on the athletic trainer and equipment manager role for the 2016-17 season.

Head coach Kevin Willison and assistant coach Alex Evin will continue behind the bench this season.
