Port Alberni Bombers to host first ID camp for roster spots

Roster spots for the Junior B team will be filled at the conclusion of the camp

Port Alberni’s new junior ‘B’ hockey team is set to host its first-ever ID camp this summer.

The Port Alberni Bombers will hold a camp at the Alberni Valley Multiplex from July 19-20 with new head coach Gaelan Patterson.

Roster spots for the team will be filled at the conclusion of the camp.

The Bombers are one of two new expansion teams for the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL), along with the Lake Cowichan Kraken. The Bombers, who will play in the Alberni Valley Multiplex, are owned by the same group that owns the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the BCHL.

The VIJHL was forced to cancel its 2020-21 season due to provincial COVID-19 restrictions, but the league is anticipating a “normal” season in 2021-22.
