No Wunder Bulldogs traded

The Bulldogs find coveted physical defender in Quinton Wunder.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs gained one and lost one on defense after making a couple of moves.

The team announced that it picked up six-foot two 190 pound defenseman Quinton Wunder from Simi Valley, CA.

Wunder comes from the California Titans U18 program. He is expected to be a defensive-defenseman that takes the body and likes to play physically.

“We look forward to Quinton adding an element that is needed on the back-end,” Bulldogs head coach and general manager Kevin Willison said.

“His physical play should be a big presence and he seems very keen to help us achieve our goals.”

Wunder appeared in all 24 games this season for the Titans, notching seven assists and 32 PIMs.

He also leads all defensemen on the Titans in plus/minus with a plus eight.

Wunder will wear No. 25 and will be in the line-up this weekend for the Bulldogs.

To make way for Wunder, the Bulldogs released 1995-born defenseman Brodie Clowes.

The former D-man was initially acquired along with future considerations from the Whitecourt Wolverines (AJHL) forthe CJHL playing rights to Luke Fenske.

Clowes appeared in 12 games for the Bulldogs, but he had troubles finding his stride and lacked the physicality that the team was looking for.
