Alberni Bulldogs trade Eremenko

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have traded Marc Eremenko to the Olds Grizzlys in return for forward Mitch Makin.

The Bulldogs signed Eremenko in the off-season and he showed strong character coming back from facing much adversity over the last year, head coach and GM Kevin Willison said.

But several defencemen are coming off the injured list; Willison had to make room for Daniel Delbianco, Kurtis Gosselin and Brandon Halls.

“Marc has come a long way since the start of the summer and with players returning from injuries we are happy to find him a place where he will play and continue to develop,” Willison said in a statement.

The Bulldogs host Cowichan Capitals this Friday, Nov. 30 (7 p.m. start) and hope to avenge a 6–2 loss last week.

Langley Rivermen are in town Saturday night (7 p.m.).
