The Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society and the Alberni Valley Bulldogs hockey club wish to announce that they have released Head Coach and GM Kevin Willison, effective immediately.
The decision to release Willison was made after much deliberation and consideration of the best interests of the team going forward.
“Kevin has served both this team and our community with all his heart and we did not come to this decision easily” says PAJHS President Ron Paulson. “We will miss his character and gritty determination that was reflected in the teams he put on the ice”.
During Willison’s tenure as Head Coach/GM the Bulldogs made the playoffs in 4 of the 5 years, including winning the Island Division playoffs in 2013.
“Both Bobbi and I have truly enjoyed our time here in Alberni.” says Willison. “We would like to thank all of the fans and people in the community for their hospitality and friendship over the past 5 years.”
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs will start recruiting for a new Head Coach immediately. Associate Coach Alex Evin will be supervising hockey operations until a new Head Coach is signed.
