Welcome to the team and the community Michael!
Also - here's highlights from Sunday's 4-2 win over the Langley Rivermen. Excuse the delay in getting these put together. Busy times lately, combined with a new computer and learning a new system has made this a bit more challenging than it usually is!
SKILLED FORWARD ADDED IN TRADE WITH SMOKE EATERS
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have completed a trade
with the Trail Smoke Eaters, acquiring the CJHL playing rights of
2000-born forward Michael Hodge in return for future considerations.
Hodge has five goals and 12 points in 35 regular season games as a
British Columbia Hockey League rookie after playing with the Calgary
Midget AAA Flames last season.
"Michael plays the game fast and has some really good offensive tools,
along with a great work ethic," says Bulldogs head coach Matt Hughes.
"We're familiar with him going back to last season and he performed
well at one of our spring camps, so we were excited when the
opportunity came up to make this move and add him to our group."
Hodge is expected to join the Bulldogs in time for this weekend's
three-game road trip to Wenatchee, West Kelowna and Coquitlam.
