The Alberni Valley Bulldogs play their last home game of the season against the Cowichan Valley Capitals on Friday night and team officials want the joint packed to the rafters with fans.

The theme for the game is ‘Pack the Plex’, an initiative that is meant to pack up the AV Multiplex with fans.

‘Pack the Plex’ will see the Bulldogs host minor league hockey coaches and players, and School District 70 ball hockey teams.

As an enticement, ticket prices for the event will be a flat $7 for adults, seniors and students.

The event is an opportunity for fans to come out and enjoy a night of great Jr. A hockey action, director business operations Ron Paulson said.

“It has been a while since we have filled this barn and we have set our sights to ‘Pack the Plex’ yet again to recreate that level of energy not seen since Hockeyville.”

The Bulldogs beat the Nanaimo Clippers 4-0 on Tuesday.

They last played Cowichan at home on Feb. 7 and beat them 6-1.
