November 16, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announce the acquisition of Dominic Thom from the Calgary Mustangs of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for the CJHL playing rights to defensemen Nathan Walker and Nolan Alward.
Thom is a big towering defenseman with experience in the AJHL and the Western Hockey League. This season Thom has posted 5 points and 55 penalty minutes in 10 games with the Mustangs. Prior to that, Thom was a standout for the Edge School and the Calgary Northstars midget programs respectively.
The Calgary, Alberta, native is known for his strong, steady presence on the blue line and will bring some consistency to the Bulldogs defense core. “Dominic should be a steady defenseman for us and we are very excited to for him join the team,” said Head Coach and General Manager Kevin Willison. “It is difficult to see Nathan and Nolan go because both are great in the community and with their teammates. However, we are confident that this move immediately makes our hockey club better.”
The 6-foot-3 Thom is expected to join the Bulldogs for their up and coming road trip to the Okanagan, which begins against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Friday night.
