Alberni Valley Bulldogs GM/Head Coach Nolan Graham is pleased to announce the signing of (91) Forward Trent Dorais.
Dorais, a native of Vernon BC, split time in 2008 – 2009 between the Vernon Vipers (BCHL) and the Sicamous Eagles (KIJHL). In 28 games with the Vipers, Dorais scored 3G – 7A – 10PTS - 28PIM.
“I am very excited that Trent will be wearing Bulldogs colors next season. Trent is a fearless competitor that creates offensive chances by going to the tough areas of the ice. He is a player that is willing to pay the price every night” comments GM/Head Coach Nolan Graham. “Trent will be expected to provide offense to our lineup through his tenacity and skill” adds Graham
Dorais helped lead the Sicamous Eagles to the KIJHL Conference final, where the Eagles eventually fell to the Kamloops Storm. Dorais put up 7G – 18A – 25PTS - 133PIM in 41 games last season (regular season and playoffs) with the Eagles.

Don't miss Monday's edition of THE PEAK morning show, as I'll be joined by former NHL referee and Port Alberni Native Rob Schick just after 8:10am to talk about the Alberni Valleyt Charity Golf Classic. Rob of course started the tournament, wayyy back when, like when the Coyotes were the Jets! If you miss it live, I'll get a copy for the blog.
That's it, enjoy the weekend, slather on that sunscreen!!
