It blows my mind that a month from today we will be dropping the puck in Powell River on the 2010-2011 BCHL Regular Season as the Dogs visit the Kings.
I'm not ready for the puck to drop, as I have a trip back to Manitoba with the family to visit the family coming up next week. THEN I will be ready for the season.
Former Bulldog Robert Lindores (moved to the Trail Smoke Eaters after the RBC Cup trade embargo lifted as futures for the Tye Lewis deal) has been moved again, this time to the Surrey Eagles.
Here's the update from the Eagles website
I ran into Robert last weekend and he told me the deal might be coming down...While there are benefits to both teams in coming to Surrey as opposed to Trail, he will be closer to home and he'll obviously be more familiar with the Coastal Conference due to his time spent with the Bulldogs and with the Clippers as an affiliate player. And of course he will get more than just one chance to play in his hometown which would have been the case had he remained in Trail.
Best of luck "Lindy"!
Here's a heads up on another former Bulldog Josh Bonar, from Gregg Drinnan's "Taking Note"
F Josh Bonar (Kamloops, Vancouver, Regina, 2000-03) signed a one-year contract with Miskolci Jegesmedve JSE (Hungary). He had 21 goals and 19 assists in 49 games with Louisiana IceGators (SPHL) last season
Best of luck as well to Josh....Please bring me back a couple more pucks! I can't wait until I interview Josh, so I can hear him pronounce the name of the team he plays for!
