Port Alberni Joins Junior Hockey League
Port Alberni Bombers cleared for takeoff in 2021
The ownership that owns the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the B.C. Hockey League received approval on Thursday, May 27 to join the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League for the fall of 2021. The Port Alberni Bombers will join the VIJHL’s north division starting in September. There are currently nine teams in the league from Victoria to Campbell River.
David Michaud, who will oversee hockey operations for the Jr. B Bombers said, “We envision the Bombers as the logical next step for graduating Alberni Minor Hockey midget age players, as well as a spot for potential Bulldogs players to develop their skill in our program and under our guidance.”
Mike Doucette, president of AVMHA, is excited at the prospect of giving Alberni Valley hockey players a chance to play at home. “I think (the Bombers) will be an excellent opportunity for some of our local kids to play closer to home and for parents to have less expensive options” Doucette said.
