It's the toughest part of this job - seeing guys move on. Best of luck to both Ryan and Quinn, two great guys who served the team and community well and always treated me with nothing but the utmost respect.
BULLDOGS MOVE VETERANS
October 25, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have traded forwards Ryan Finnegan (Tecumseh, KS) and Quinn Syrydiuk (Toronto, ONT) in two separate transactions.
Syrydiuk served as an alternate captain for the 71 games he played in a Bulldogs uniform. He will be joining the Cobourg Cougars of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, who are hosting the 2017 Royal Bank Cup.
“Quinn is a great kid and brought a lot to our team both on and off the ice,” says Head Coach & GM Kevin Willison. “Unfortunately with our team’s performance and Quinn only producing 3 Points (1 Goal and 2 Assists) in 14 Games, we felt a change was needed for him to get back on track.”
Finnegan led the Bulldogs in scoring during the playoffs last season but was unable put up a goal in 16 Games thus far (0 Goals and 4 Assists). Finnegan will be joining the Jersey Hitmen of the United States Premiere Hockey League.
“Ryan is another great kid but was struggling to produce offensively for us,” says Willison. “We want to thank both young men for their efforts and contributions to the community of Alberni Valley and wish them both the best in their hockey careers.”
Both players were traded for Future Considerations.
