TALENT PIPELINE FROM MAJOR MIDGET SILVERTIPS CONTINUES WITH SKILLED DEFENCEMAN
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are pleased to announce a commitment from 2002-born defenceman Carson Hemenway to join the team for the 2019/20 BCHL season.
Hemenway joins the Bulldogs from the BC Major Midget League’s North Island Silvertips, where he scored three goals and totaled 19 points in 39 games this season. He is the third player in three seasons to commit to the Bulldogs from the Silvertips program, joining forwards Keaton Mastrodonato and Ethan Jones.
“Carson is a smooth, skilled blueliner who plays fast and smart in all three zones,” says Bulldogs assistant coach Jeff Dubois. “He was a standout at our spring camp in Port Alberni after impressing our staff throughout his Major Midget season. We’re pleased to welcome Carson and his family to the Alberni Valley.”
“I’m very exited to join the Bulldogs for the coming season,” says Hemenway, who describes himself as an offensive defenceman with a good shot who loves to get involved in the play. “I chose the Bulldogs because I’ve heard nothing but good things about the organization, and at camp the returning players made me feel welcome from the get go. From the people I’ve talked to they’ve all said that the Bulldogs have an amazing fan base and great atmosphere, and the chance to be a part of that is very exiting for me.”
Hemenway will join his new teammates when the Bulldogs’ 2019 Main Camp opens at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on August 19.
