Bulldogs man does it by the numbers

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs new addition to its hockey operations is the kind of guy who likes to do things by the numbers.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have made an addition to hockey operations and he’s the kind of guy who likes to do things by the numbers.

Team officials announced that Dan Tisserand has been hired as the team’s official statistician.

“Dan’s attention to detail and ability to keep track of a high volume of data is very impressive and will be very helpful to the coaches,” said assistant coach and assistant director of hockey operations Adam Hayduk.

Tisserand will provide Bulldogs coaching staff with player and team statistics including season totals for each game.  He replaces players who are out of the lineup, who have thus far been called on to keep stats.

Tisserand and his wife live in Nanaimo but he is no stranger to the Alberni Valley. He was born and raised in Port Alberni where he played minor hockey and coached at the bantam level for one season.

While his life has been in Nanaimo Tisserand attends almost all the Bulldogs games on the Island, the team said.

“I have been a fan of the Bulldogs since they moved to Port Alberni 11 years ago,” Tisserand said.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Bulldogs and I look forward to being a part of the 2012/13 season.”

Tisserand has provided stats for Evan Hammond’s play-by-play Bulldogs broadcasts for the past seven years.
