FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are please to announce the signing of two new defensemen for the 2016-17 season.
Connor Welsh, a 5’8, 160lb, defenseman from Halifax, NS is coming off an excellent final season with Stanstead College where he scored 43 points (5 goals and 38 assists) in 68 games. Welsh is a very intelligent, mobile defenseman who possesses a lot of skill with the puck.
“I’m excited to be a Bulldog and play in the BCHL,” says Welsh. “I look forward to meeting my new teammates along with playing in front of the best fans in the BCHL.”
The Bulldogs would also like to welcome Tyler Lentz, a native of Calgary, AB to the team. Lentz played last season for the Calgary Northstars Midget AAA program where he scored 21 points (5 goals and 16 assists) in 32 regular season games and added 10 points (2 goals and 8 assists) in 7 playoff games. Lentz who stands at 6-feet, 185lbs, is another strong skating defenseman who has the ability to join the rush and move the puck to his teammates.
“I am looking forward to moving on to the next level in my hockey career as well as becoming a part of the Port Alberni community,” says Lentz. “I am excited to work with the coaching staff every day and improve both on and off the ice.”
Both athletes are bright students and will have many doors open in their NCAA future. The Bulldogs are very excited to welcome Connor and Tyler to the Bulldogs family.
The Bulldogs continue to prepare for their Main Camp, which opens August 22nd at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.
