Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announce two changes to the defense core heading into the games this weekend.
The Bulldogs have released 1995-born defenseman Brodie Clowes. He was initially acquired along with future considerations from the Whitecourt Wolverines (AJHL) for the CJHL playing rights to Luke Fenske. Clowes appeared in 12 games for the Bulldogs accumulating four assists but had troubles finding his stride and lacked the physicality that the team was looking for.
Today, the Bulldogs filled that roster spot with 1995-born defenseman Quinton Wunder from Simi Valley, CA. Wunder comes from the California Titans U18 program coached by Luc Beausoleil. The 6’2”, 190lbs defenseman is expected to be a defensive-defenseman that takes the body and likes to play physically.
“We look forward to Quinton adding an element that is needed on the back-end,” said Bulldogs' head coach and general manager Kevin Willison. “His physical play should be a big presence and he seems very keen to help us achieve our goals.”
Wunder appeared in all 24 games so far this season for the California Titans U18 team adding 7 assists and 32 PIMs. He also leads all defensemen on the Titans in plus/minus with a +8 rating.
“I am very excited to join what seems to be a great organization,” said newest Bulldog Quinton Wunder. “I would like to thank my parents and my coach Luc Beausoleil for helping me take the next step in my career. I can’t wait to play this weekend,” added Wunder.
Wunder will wear #25 and will be in the line-up this weekend for the Bulldogs.
