QUEBEC-BORN BLUELINER BRINGS MOBILITY AND EXPERIENCE IN TOP PREP LEAGUE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are pleased to announce that 2000-born defenseman Christophe Sauvageau has committed to join the team for the 2019/20 British Columbia Hockey League season. Sauvageau is from Mascouche, Quebec and has played the last two seasons at the Winchendon School in Massachusetts, competing in the New England Preparatory School League. (NEPSAC).
“Christophe is a skilled, two-way defenceman whose mobility and hockey sense really distinguish him as a player,” says Bulldogs head coach Matt Hughes. “He’s a hard-working, defensively conscious blueliner who also has the ability to jump up in the rush and contribute offensively. His goal is to earn an NCAA scholarship and we’re very excited that he’s chosen to take the next steps in his development as a member of the Bulldogs.”
Sauvageau has been a three-sport athlete at Winchendon, competing in soccer and lacrosse in addition to hockey.
“I’m so thankful to the Bulldogs organization for giving me the opportunity to play in the BCHL,” says Sauvageau. “My two years at the Winchendon School have allowed me grow and mature away from home, and I know that the BCHL is the next step for me to achieve my dream of playing college hockey. I’m excited to be a part of this organization and I can’t wait to meet the fans and experience the Port Alberni community.”
Sauvageau will complete the 2018/19 season at the Winchendon School and join the Bulldogs for training camp in August.
