BULLDOGS ACQUIRE BC FORWARD
November 1, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – After a not so stellar October, the Bulldogs announce the acquisition of forward Gary Dhaliwal (Richmond, BC) from the Brockville Braves in exchange for Future Considerations.
Dhaliwal originally began the season with the Trenton Golden Hawks of the Ontario Provincial Junior Hockey League scoring 7 Points (1 Goal and 6 Assists) in 8 games before being traded to Brockville.
People of the Alberni Valley may remember Dhaliwal from the 2014-15 season when he and current Bulldog captain Jordan Sandhu made their BCHL debuts as affiliate players. During their 2 Games as call-ups, both were acknowledged with loud cheers for their numerous relentless shifts applying offensive pressure.
Head Coach & GM Kevin Willison hopes that Dhaliwal can bring some magic back to town. “We are excited to have Gary, who is already familiar with our program join us,” says Willison. “He has grown in size and improved a lot over the past two years and we look forward to seeing what he can bring to our hockey team.”
Dhaliwal is expected to be in the line-up this Friday when the Bulldogs travel to Victoria to face the Grizzlies, and then host the Merritt Centennials on Saturday.
