The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announced today that, effective immediately, Head Coach and General Manager Matt Hughes has resigned his position from the club by mutual agreement. Hughes was originally hired by the team in May 2017 and guided the Bulldogs for two seasons.
“On behalf of the entire Bulldogs organization and the Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society, I’d like to thank Matt for his efforts on the ice, and in the community during his tenure with the club,” says said Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society President Jim Pelk. “We had many exciting nights at the Multiplex over the past two years, and we wish Matt all the best in his future hockey endeavors.”
“Coaching the Alberni Valley Bulldogs has been an honour and I would like to thank the players, billets, fans and community as a whole for the warm welcome they have given me,” says Hughes. “I wish the team full success in the future.”
The search for Hughes’s replacement is underway and the club hopes to name a new Head Coach and General Manager in the coming days.
