Tironese to Canada West Camp, Sabo to Princeton, Crossan to injury rehab

Congrats to Bulldogs Forward Evan Tironese, named to the Team Canada West tryout camp roster yesterday by Hockey Canada...full roster HERE Now go make the team and LIGHT IT UP!

It's as good an excuse as any to relive his hatty last year....

Sabo Commits to Princeton

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are very proud to announce that 94 D Marlon Sabo has committed to the Princeton University Tigers NCAA Division 1 program. The Princeton Tigers men’s hockey team plays out of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).

Sabo is entering his second season with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. The 6’4”, 214lbs and has been limited to only two games in the 2012/13 season due to an injury sustained in practice.

“We are extremely pleased to hear that Marlon has committed to Princeton,” said Alberni Valley Bulldogs head coach Kevin Willison. “Knowing Marlon for the time I have, I certainly know that Princeton will be very happy with the person and the hockey player they will receive,” added Willison.

Sabo will follow in the footsteps of two Alberni Valley Bulldogs alumni: Kevin Ross and James Kerr. Ross played for the Bulldogs from 2007 to 2010 and this season he is in his third season with the Princeton Tigers and Kerr, the brother of current Bulldog Nicholas Kerr, is entering his
senior year at Princeton.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs organization would like to congratulate Marlon for committing to the Princeton University Tigers. The team and the community look forward to great things from Marlon for the remainder of the 2012/13 season.

Sabo committed for the 2013/14 season. For more information please contact Head Coach Kevin Willison

With the good news unfortunately comes sad and bad news - Jared Crossan is being forced to step away from the game due to injury....I could see it on Jared's face when I interviewed him in Victoria, ice packs on both knees. I am SO SO SO happy he buried that goal in Nanaimo in the 7-2 Dogs win.

Sometimes the Hockey Gods work in weird ways. Or that's at least how I like to believe things in this magical game happen. Why did that weird/odd/flukey goal by Luke Gordon somehow find it's way into the net with just seconds left on the clock in the third period? To make Crossan's goal the Game Winner of course!

Best of luck Jared, you will be missed.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs regret to announce that 93 D Jared Crossan is leaving hockey for a short while to rehabilitate a reoccurring injury to his knee.

Immediately upon joining the Bulldogs this season, everyone felt the strong leadership and character that Crossan brought to the team. The players internally voted Crossan the team's "rookie captain" and he would always go above-and-beyond to ensure he was prepared for upcoming games.

"The Bulldogs organization, fans, players, and community would like to wish Jared all the best with his decision that he made. For him I'm sure it was not an easy one," said Bulldogs head coach Kevin Willison. "The Bulldogs would like to thank Jared for all he has done in the community and on the ice in the short period of time that he was here in the Valley," remarked Willison.

In 13 games, Crossan contributed with 1 goal and 3 assists. His one goal was the game winner against Nanaimo on October 12th.

Jared will be missed around the rink and in the community. The Alberni Valley Bulldogs family wishes Jared all the best with his rehabilitation and all future endeavours.
