The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have committed to 04 Forward Mateo Sjoberg for the 2022-2023 BCHL Season.
Sjoberg, a native of Surrey, BC made his BCHL Debut with the Bulldogs on January 11th, 2022 in Duncan as the Bulldogs defeated the Cowichan Valley Capitals 4-1.
Sjoberg spent the 2021-2022 season with the VIJHL’s Kerry Park Islanders where he notched 33 points (11g 22a) in 48 games. It was during the Islanders playoff run where Sjoberg took a big step as he posted 8 goals and 8 assists for 16 points in the Islanders 10 post season games.
Once the Islanders season came to an end, he joined the Bulldogs “black aces” and skated with the Bulldogs during their playoff run.
Getting to know the group of players returning to the Bulldogs was a big part of Sjoberg’s decision. “I’m excited for this opportunity with the Bulldogs. I’m looking forward to next season in Alberni with a great group of guys and of course the amazing fans. I can’t wait get started.” said Sjoberg.
Next up for the Bulldogs will be the Abbotsford ID Camp in early June.
