Bulldogs make moves

The Bulldogs are announcing two roster moves and a newly committed NCAA player as they head into their second 2016 identification camp

As the Alberni Valley Bulldogs head into their second 2016 Spring Identification Camp in Osoyoos, BC, from April 29-May 1, they’re announcing two roster moves for the 2016/17 season and a newly committed NCAA player.

Rookie standout Jordan Sandhu has committed to the NCAA Division 1 program of the Arizona State Sun Devils, Bulldogs’ assistant coach Adam Hayduk announced.

Sandhu led all 1999-born players in scoring in the BCHL this season with 40 points in 44 games and will return to play for the Bulldogs for the 2016/17 season.

The next closest 1999 in scoring was Merritt Centennials’ Tyler Ward with 27 points in 52 games.

The Bulldogs send 1998-born defenseman Marshall Skapski to the Merritt Centennials to complete a transaction from earlier this season that saw the Bulldogs acquire forward Ryan Finnegan.

Skapski appeared in 52 games for the Bulldogs, producing one goal and six assists to go along with 42 penalty minutes.

Finnegan’s production increased significantly after coming to the Bulldogs, clicking with Bulldogs’ rookie forward Nathan Dingmann.

In a separate deal, the Bulldogs send 20-year old forward Adam Donnelly to the Steinbach Pistons of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

This move is the first step of alleviating the log jam of 20-year-olds eligible to return next season.
