Updated to add a video of what Georgeson is capable of - a nice goal here, which was his first of two on the game. He would also add two assists in a 1st star effort.
Very exciting addition - I have always been a fan of Georgeson. An exciting player to watch, fast with good hands....welcome to the Dog Pound Justin!
Bulldogs Announce Another Deadline Deal: Acquire Coquitlam’s Leading Scorer
May 8, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announced today the future considerations part of the trade that saw the Bulldogs send Lars Hepso and the rights to Adam Rossignol to the Coquitlam Express at the trade deadline.

Champions of the Inaugural Western Canada Cup.
The Eagles have done the BCHL proud - now please do it one more time and go and win the RBC Cup!
I had a great time at the tournament working with the Fast Hockey crew broadcasting a selection of the games, and we heard great feedback from the fans in the rest of Western Canada - and the World, who were watching from a distance. It's too bad more people didn't show up to watch the games but I think that was to be expected with how the crowds were in Nanaimo throughout the season. Here's hoping Dauphin, Manitoba does just a good a job of hosting the event as the people in Nanaimo did with it this year.
