Bulldogs add Ryan Moon, move Spencer Hora

The Bulldogs announced a trade earlier today, as they added Ryan Moon from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for Spencer Hora. Welcome to the team and the community Ryan, and thanks for your service to the same Spencer! 



Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have completed a trade  
with the Cowichan Valley Capitals, acquiring the CJHL playing rights  
of 1999-born forward Ryan Moon in return for 1999-born defenceman  
Spencer Hora.

Moon had scored three goals and added four assists in 14 regular  
season games with the Capitals. He spent the previous two seasons with  
the Trail Smoke Eaters, combining to score 14 goals and 30 points in  
89 games as a 17- and 18-year old. He also suited up 11 playoff games  
last season as the Smoke Eaters advanced to the Interior Conference  

"Ryan is a physical power forward who can contribute offensively and  
be a tough guy to play against in all three zones," says Bulldogs head  
coach Matt Hughes. "We had been looking to add a player who would  
challenge for minutes in our top-six forward group and we feel Ryan  
can do that. We're excited to have him join us."

In return the Bulldogs parted with an assistant captain and  
experienced defender in Spencer Hora, who had been acquired in a  
January 2018 trade from the West Kelowna Warriors. Hora had picked up  
five assists in 26 games this season.

"It was a very difficult decision moving a tremendous person and  
leader like Spencer," says Hughes. "He quickly became a fan favourite  
after we picked him up in January because of how hard he plays, and he  
was well-liked and respected in our dressing room. We wish him all the  
best with the Capitals and appreciate the big role he played in our  
leadership group this season."

Moon is expected to arrive in Port Alberni in time to make his  
Bulldogs debut when the Victoria Grizzlies visit on Friday night.
