Dogs visit Clippers tonight, Jordan Kremyr interview

It's the first meeting of the season between these two great rivals as the Bulldogs (1-4-0-0, 5th Island) head over the hump to visit the Clippers (3-3-0-0, 3rd Island) at the Frank Crane Arena.

The Dogs were last in action Friday morning at the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack where they lost their third in a row, 3-0 to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

The Clippers also were last in action at the Showcase, as they fell 4-2 to the Coquitlam Express on Saturday afternoon

It's pretty early in the season, but this is a pretty big game. The Dogs have lost three straight, and they have scored once in the process. They are a banged up crew - it's certainly way too early in the season for that, but it's the hole the Dogs are in with upwards of three regulars out of the line up. It's a factor, but the remaining guys taking the ice can't let it be an excuse. Come ready to play, keep it simple, get pucks to the net and be ready to play a full 60 and let the pucks bounce how they may!
I'll have all the action for you on Van Isle Ford Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM starting with the pregame show at 6:45 with the puck drop and play-by-play to follow at 7:00pm.

Tonight marks the beginning of what is a season-long endeavor to try and catch up to as many former Bulldogs as possible for a little chit chat about their time here, and where they are now. The first in our series of Alumni Interviews for the 2015-2016 season is former Bulldog Jordan Kremyr, now with the Norfolk Admirals of the ECHL.

Jordan has recently began a new endeavour - mentoring athletes. To learn more, check out his website by clicking HERE

Jordan spoke to the Bulldogs after their game against Penticton at the Showcase on Saturday. It was very very interesting to hear Jordan speak of where he began, what he went through ( 4 years with Providence at the NCAA level) and where he his now. Jordan wasn't what I would have called a team-first role player during his time with the Bulldogs - he was the leading scorer, a top end guy. In College his role completely changed. To play pro - he's going into his 7th pro season - he had to block shots and be an energy guy and reinvent himself.  Check out Jordan's career stats here He sounds like the consummate team guy now - he was named Captain of the Bakersfield Condors last year. A former chriping champ, Jordan spoke on Thursday on how he realized the negative effects of what happens in every single dressing room, and how he focuses now on quite simply building his teammates up and being positive. Tire pumping only!
