BC, spent last season with the Cowichan Valley Capitals before ending
up in Merritt this season via the Nanaimo Clippers and the Grand Prairie
Storm. In four appearances in Merritt this season, LaCouvee has a
record of 4-0 with a 2.24 GAA and a .918 save percentage.
second move by the club on Tuesday, the team traded the CJHL playing
rights of 1993-born defenseman Luke Fenske to the Whitecourt Wolverines
(AJHL) for 1995-born defenseman Brodie Clowes and future considerations.
Clowes was originally a 5th
round draft pick in 2010 by the Chilliwack Bruins (WHL) and broke into
junior hockey with the Olds Grizzlys (AJHL) in 2011/12. He’s a 6’2,
195lbs, right-handed defenseman who plays physically and has a good shot
from the point. In nine games with Whitecourt this season, Clowes has
one assist and 30 PIMs.
To make room for LaCouvee and Clowes,
the Bulldogs have released 1995-born goalie Brad Rebagliati and
1994-born forward Dean Allison. The Bulldogs would like to thank both
Brad and Dean for their contributions to the organization and wish them
all the best in their future endeavours.
