The Alberni Valley Bulldogs lost a scorer and gained a new piece of the puzzle in a three player trade.

The team traded forward Evan Anderson and defenseman Turner Popoff to the Langley Rivermen for defenseman Bo Pellah. “The organization is very excited to get a player of Bo’s skill set. He is going to bring another level of play to our roster,” said Alberni Valley Bulldogs General Managerand Head Coach Kevin Willison.

Anderson had four goals and 10 assists over 18 games with the Bulldogs so far this season. Popoff has one goal and two assists over 17 games. Anderson’s last point was an assist against the Victoria Grizzlies on Oct. 14.

Pella is a smooth skating, puck moving, competitive player that brings a new element to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. “Bo will make us better on and off the ice with his hard work and dedication that he brings to the game of hockey,” added Willison.

Pella has one goal and 12 assists over 14 games this season. He is committed to the NCAA Division one program at Penn State for 2014/15. He is also one of only six BCHL players on the NHL Central Scouting Preliminary 2013 North American Rankings for skaters for the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.

The Bulldogs now have roster space for Marlon Sabo and Hunter Stewart, both of whom are set to return from injury later this week.

Ice Chips… Forward Evan Tironese has cracked the roster of Canada West in the World Junior A Challenge. The challenge is from Nov. 5-11 in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

The Bulldogs next action is against the Coquitlam Express on Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Multiplex.
