After a successful Summer ID Camp this past weekend at the Multiplex, the Bulldogs are pleased to welcome 2003 born forward Kobe Assam for the 2020-2021 season.
The 6’2, 185 pound native of Kelowna BC spent the past 3 seasons in Penticton with the Okanagan Hockey Academy. Last season Assam posted 14 goals and added 21 assists for 35 points and 74 PIM in 33 games with the Midget Prep Red team. Assam also appeared in 2 games with the Bulldogs as an affiliate player towards the end of last season.
“Kobe had an outstanding weekend during our ID Camp” said head coach & general manager Joe Martin. “We challenged him at the end of last season to come to this camp and prove to us that he can be a Bulldogs. It’s a great story and we’re excited to add him to our line-up.”
For Assam, becoming a Bulldogs was the realization of year-long goal. “I’d like to thank the entire Bulldogs organization for this amazing opportunity. It’s been my goal for this entire year and I’m truly honoured and excited to become a Bulldog.”
Assam will join his new teammates in mid-September for the start of the Bulldogs Extended Training Camp powered by Van Isle Ford & Pacific Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd.
