Alberni Valley Bulldogs GM/Head Coach Nolan Graham announces the signing of (91) Forward Trent Dorais.
Dorais, a native of Vernon BC, split time in 2008 ? 2009 between the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL and the Sicamous Eagles of the KIJHL. Dorais began last season with the Vipers playing in 29 games scoring 3G ? 5A ? 8PTS ? 28PIM, before joining the Sicamous Eagles in January. Dorais helped lead the Eagles to the KIJHL conference finals putting up 7G ? 18A ? 25PTS ? 133PIM in 41 games (regular season and playoffs).
While with the Eagles, Dorais dressed an additional 10 games with the Vipers during the final months of the BCHL regular season. Dorais rejoined the Vipers during the playoffs and was able to experience the road to the Royal Bank Cup.
GM/Head Coach Nolan Graham comments ?Trent is a fearless competitor. He has a good stick and is tough to knock off the puck. Trent is willing to go to dirty areas to score.? Graham adds ?Trent is a character player that understands what it takes to achieve success; I am excited that Trent will be wearing Bulldog colors next season.?
