Bulldogs moves bolster roster

The Alberni Bulldogs made a slew of roster changes as they prepares to face Cowichan Valley Capitals and Nanaimo Clippers this weekend.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have made a slew of roster changes as they prepares to face division rivals Cowichan Valley Capitals and Nanaimo Clippers this weekend.

The Bulldogs re-assigned forward Michael Sandor to the Penticton Lakers of the KIJHL Junior B league. He will remain an affiliate player with the Bulldogs unless another Junior A team picks up his playing rights.

The move was needed to reduce the roster to make way for players returning from injured reserve, Bulldogs head coach  Kevin Willison said in a release. The team also re-assigned forward Jon Brumwell to the Campbell River Storm of the VIJHL Junior B league. Brumwell was identified at the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 2012 spring identification camp after spending the 2011-12 season with the Phoenix Junior Coyotes U18 program.

“Jon is a great kid who needs to identify his game to play at the Junior A level,” Willison said. “Jon will work hard to improve his game in hopes to be in a Bulldogs uniform again sometime soon.”

It wasn’t all subtractions though.

The team added forward Chris Tracy from Marlton, New Jersey. Tracy played the majority of the 2011/12 season with the Langley Rivermen, where he recorded 15 goals and 13 assists in 47 games in his rookie year.

Tracy was released by the Rivermen at the start of the season due to roster space issues and also appeared in four games for the Surrey Eagles. Tracy started practice with the Bulldogs last week.

Ice chips…The Bulldogs play home and away games this weekend. They play the Cowichan Valley Capitals in Cowichan on Friday night. The Bulldogs return home to Weyerhaeuser Arena in the multiplex to play the Nanaimo Clippers on Saturday.  Puck drop is 7 p.m.
