On Sunday, Aug. 23, at the banquet following the 4th annual Bulldogs Season Kick-off golf tournament, the Bulldogs introduced Eric Margo as the captain of the 2015/16 squad.

The announcement sparked a standing ovation from the 85+ attendees.

Margo is entering his second full season with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs after being signed as a free agent last off-season.

His past experience includes being the captain of the 2012/13 Vancouver North West Giants in the BC Major Midget League where he posted 51 points in 38 games. That season Margo helped lead his team to a provincial championship and helped his team win the prestigious Mac’s Midget Tournament in Calgary, AB, where he was named to the second all-star team.

On the international stage, Margo was the captain of Team Canada’s U20 Roller Hockey team in the summer of 2014, winning a silver medal at the World Championships in Toulouse, France.

“I’m excited for this opportunity as it’s an honor to be named captain of the Bulldogs,” said Margo. “We are poised to do great things this year and I can’t wait to get the season started,” added Margo.
