FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have made a significant trade with the Okotoks Oilers of the AJHL, swapping top defensemen.
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs send 1994-born defenseman Darian Henry to the Okotoks Oilers of the AJHL in return for 1995-born defenseman Drew Weich (pronounced “wike”).
In Weich, the Bulldogs get a 6’4, 200lbs, right-handed, steady, two-way defenseman who is capable of putting up points on the power play.
Henry’s rights were originally acquired by the Bulldogs back in August 2012 in exchange for forward Justin Morello.
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have also signed veteran 20 year-old defenseman Drake Brown. Brown split his CJHL Junior A career between the Weyburn Red Wings (SJHL) and the Bonnyville Pontiacs (AJHL). Brown is a big, steady, stay-at-home, body-crunching defenseman and has been skating with the Bulldogs for the past week.
The Bulldogs did not give anything up in signing Brown. A 20 year-old spot on the roster was made available as a result of the Weich/Henry trade.
Brown will wear #3 for the Bulldogs and Weich will wear #25.
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs welcome Drew and Drake to the Bulldogs family and they are sure to be a perfect fit to a very hardworking team. The Bulldogs wish Darian continued success with Okotoks.
