SKILLED FORWARD ADDED FROM SMOKE EATERS
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have completed a trade with the Trail Smoke Eaters, acquiring the CJHL playing rights of 2000-born forward Michael Hodge in return for future considerations.
Hodge has five goals and 12 points in 35 regular season games as a British Columbia Hockey League rookie after playing with the Calgary Midget AAA Flames last season.
“Michael plays the game fast and has some really good offensive tools, along with a great work ethic,” says Bulldogs head coach Matt Hughes. “We’re familiar with him going back to last season and he performed well at one of our spring camps, so we were excited when the opportunity came up to make this move and add him to our group.”
Hodge is expected to join the Bulldogs in time for this weekend’s three-game road trip to Wenatchee, West Kelowna and Coquitlam.
