New trainer joins the Bulldogs

Damon Pugerude has joined the Alberni Valley Bulldogs as the team’s new trainer and equipment manager.

Pugerude was selected by the coaching staff from dozens of applications that were submitted for the position.

Pugerude spent the last three seasons in a similar role with the Drayton Valley Thunder and the Sherwood Park Crusaders junior “A” hockey teams in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

In addition to his experience at the junior “A” level, Pugerude also served as a trainer at U16 Alberta Cup events, has extensive experience on the equipment side and is registered with the Alberta College of Paramedics.

“We were very pleased and impressed with Damon’s attention to detail and passion for what he does,” said Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ head coach and general manager Kevin Willison.

“He is certainly a good fit for the team.”

Pugerude started just in time for the annual Bulldogs Summer Hockey School in August.
