Port Alberni – Heading into two games in Powell River this weekend versus the Kings, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs are very excited to have both Kurt Gosselin and Craig Martin back in the line-up.
Gosselin is returning from the 30-day injury reserve list and Craig Martin is back after serving an 8 game suspension which was strongly contested by the hockey club. Both Gosselin and Martin are welcomed additions.
To make room on the roster for Gosselin’s return, the ‘Dogs trade 1994-born defenseman Luca Doctor to the St. Michaels Buzzers of the OJHL for future considerations. Doctor was acquired back in early September but struggled to find his game.
In a second roster move on Thursday, the Bulldogs also returned 1995-born defenseman Riley Ostoforoff to the Castlegar Rebels in the KIJHL. Ostoforoff will remain on the roster as an affiliate player.
