SKILLED, NCAA-COMMITTED FORWARD JOINS BULLDOGS FOR 2019/20
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are pleased to announce a commitment from 2001-born forward Tommy Bannister to join the team for the 2019/20 BCHL season.
Bannister spent the past three seasons at the Northwood School in Lake Placid, New York. He finished second in team scoring during the 2018/19 campaign, scoring 33 goals and 83 points in 68 games and he is committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at St. Lawrence University.
“Tommy is a fast, skilled forward who has been a top offensive performer at every level he’s played,” says Bulldogs head coach Joe Martin. “He comes to our team with an NCAA commitment and we’re excited to see the impact he can have as a BCHL player. We’re pleased to welcome Tommy and his family to the Alberni Valley.”
“I’m excited to play and live in Port Alberni,” says Bannister, who describes himself as a high IQ, 200-foot winger with a good scoring touch around the net. “I have always wanted to play in the BCHL and coming to the Alberni Valley and playing for Coach Martin seemed like the right fit for me.”
Bannister will join his new teammates when the Bulldogs’ 2019 Main Camp opens at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on August 19.
