January 12, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are please to announce the playing commitment of Luke Albert (Fergus, ON) for the 2017-18 season.
Albert, a 6’2, 190lb, defenseman, is currently playing for the New Hampton School prep hockey program, which is located in New Hampshire of the United States of America. During the 2015-16 season, Albert scored 31 points (5 Goals and 26 Assists) as a junior for the Huskies. He was named team captain for his 2016-17 senior season and has registered 10 points (4 Goals and 6 Assists) in 11 Games.
Bulldog fans can expect Albert to be a strong skating defender who makes a good first pass and plays a steady game in all three zones. Albert will be making the transition from prep school to junior hockey and feels that the BCHL and the Bulldogs are the right fit for him and his family.
“Alberni Valley is the program that is going to help me improve and prepare me for the next level after junior,” says Albert. “I am excited to start a new chapter of my hockey career with such a great organization.”
The Bulldogs will be looking for many other prospects and future players at our Spring Identification Camps, which will be held April 7-9th in Port Alberni and May 5-7th in Osoyoos, BC. For further information or to register online visit www.albernivalleybulldogs.ca/camps.
