The trade for Demers was an emotional one as he is from Kelowna “I was a local player for the Warriors and this is the first time living far from home so lots of emotions were racing through me, however in terms of the city and organization I’ve only heard great things!” Demers went onto say he is excited about the upcoming year “Lots of hype going into this season for the Bulldogs which really gets me excited to get the season started.”
Demers who is entering his third season in the BCHL is wanting to have the best goaltending tandem in the league “My goal this year is to have the best goalie tandem with Hawthorne so that Coach Hughes can rely on either of us any given night, and with me only having two more years in this league I personally want to get a scholarship and of course win a championship.”
The Bulldogs are back in action on Sunday against the Nanaimo Clippers.
