The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announce today that the team has acquired 1995-born defenseman Bo Pellah from the Langley Rivermen.
Pellah is a smooth skating, puck moving, competitive player that will bring a new element to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.
In the deal, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs send 1994-born defenseman Turner Popoff and 1995-born forward Evan Anderson to the Langley Rivermen.
“The organization is very excited to get a player of Bo’s skill set. He is going to bring another level of play to our roster,” said Alberni Valley Bulldogs General Manager and Head Coach Kevin Willison.
“Bo will make us better on and off the ice with his hard work and dedication that he brings to the game of hockey,” added Willison.
Pellah has a full season under his belt in the BCHL as he was the Langley Rivermen’s 16-year old player in 2011/12.
Pellah is committed to the NCAA Division 1 program at Penn State for 2014/15 and is one of only six BCHL players on the NHL Central Scouting Preliminary 2013 North American Rankings for skaters for the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.
By making a two-for-one deal, the Bulldogs, in turn, free up roster space for injured players Marlon Sabo and Hunter Stewart as they are set to come off the IR later this week.
In Popoff and Anderson, the Langley Rivermen get two players in return that were great role models in the Alberni Valley.
They made significant contributions to the team during their tenure and the organization wishes Turner and Evan all the best with their new team.
