BULLDOGS ANNOUNCE FUTURES FROM VERNON VIPERS
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announce today the future considerations component of the trade that saw defensemen Jared Wilson dealt to the Vernon Vipers last October for 95-born forward Craig Martin, 96-born forward Tyler Povelofskie and future considerations.
Povelofskie had a brief history with the Bulldogs, having been affiliated with the team during the 2012/13 season but committed to the Vernon Vipers in 2013/14 for a chance at the RBC Cup. In 2011/12, Povelofskie won a bronze medal with Team BC at the WHL U16 Western Canada Challenge Cup coached by current Bulldogs assistant coach Adam Hayduk.
"It took the Bulldogs a little longer then expected to get Tyler into a 'Dogs uniform," said Bulldogs head coach and general manager Kevin Willison. "He was a player we heavily recruited but ultimately lost out to Vernon because of a guaranteed chance for Tyler to compete for the RBC Cup," added Willison.
Tyler is a player that will provide a physical presence however he can also put the puck in the net - and he will get an opportunity to play more with the Bulldogs. With RBC Cup experience, Povelofskie will add a lot of young enthusiasm and leadership to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs next season.
As a 16 year old, Povelofskie was near a point-a-game pace with the Cariboo Cougars of the BC Major Midget League. He was the Cougars' assistant captain and quarterbacked the team's power play mid-season.
Welcome to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs family, Tyler.
