“Bantam Bulldogs Head for Provincial Championship” AV News

Bantam rep hockey team defeated Powell River in best-of-three series

Elena RardonMar. 4, 2019 Alberni Valley News Local Sports

The Alberni Valley T3 Bantam Bulldogs collected the Island District Champions banner and punched their ticket to the provincial championships with a win against the Powell River Kings on Sunday, March 3.
The Bantam Bulldogs went undefeated in round robin play during the Island League playoffs, and a win against Saanich in the semi-finals led them to a best-of-three series against Powell River for the Tier 3 banner.

The Bulldogs lost their first game in Powell River, shutout 3-0 by the home team, but bounced back at home with a 4-1 win on Saturday, March 2 and a 5-2 win on Sunday.
“They played excellent,” said head coach Wade Nicklin on Sunday. “They grinded it out until the end.”
Hudson Swann opened the scoring just 10 minutes into the first period, and Blake Moore doubled the lead with just over a minute remaining in the first. In the second period, Powell River scored one to cut the lead in half, but Alberni’s Mason Cannon added another to put the home team up 3-1.

Scoring in the third period went back and forth. Powell River added one more goal and Port Alberni added two, with Brett Bilodeau scoring once and Cannon netting his second of the game.

Alberni Valley goaltender Jake Hebert stood tall to hold his team in the game, and the Bulldogs finished with a 5-2 win.
“Jake played stellar,” said Nicklin after the game. “He was solid in the net.”
With their win on Sunday, the Bulldogs are now headed to the Tier 3 Championships for bantam rep hockey, which will be held in Port Hardy from March 17-20.

“We’ll take it one step at a time,” said Nicklin. “We’ll get a few good practices in, then go there in a good mood.”

 Coach of the Year – Kelly Clydesdale

Coach of the Year - Kelly Clydesdale

Coach of the Year – Kelly Clydesdale


Kelly is a newer coach within our association.   He started coaching with AVMHA when his children decided to join hockey late.  He usually coaches 2 teams every year if needed.  This year he coached a PeeWee house team and a Midget house team.

Due to an accident a few years ago, he suffered a major injury and was unable to come out onto the ice and coach for a good portion of that season.  However, this did not deter him and he continued to support the kids and coaching staff.  He did this from the bench whenever and wherever he was able to.  He continued to coach.

He is a very committed and dedicated coach.  He is a very patient coach (except when it comes to his own kids… but most coaches are like that and he even admits that he’s tougher on his own kids.)  He loves to teach the game of hockey and he’s  always thinking of new ways to get the kids motivated.  He is all about having fun and working as a team.  Parents love him and the kids love him.

I (Meranda Vallee) had the pleasure of coaching with him this year and he took the time to ask me questions and my thoughts, views and opinions.  He’s a great teacher.  He treated me as an equal, even though I could barely skate and had just completed the coaching course this year.  The man does have a lot of patience.

Kelly received the most nominations from the membership for “Coach of the Year”.

Volunteer of the Year – Gen Connell

Gen Connell, left with AVMHA President Meranda Vallee

Gen Connell is a newer person within our Association.  She took the initiative to step up and help out wherever she could as soon as her first child was in Mites, a couple years ago.  She was a team manager in Novice last year and she took on the role of Division Manager for the Novice Division this year.

Being a Division Manager is extremely hard work.  It requires dedication and a lot of patience, especially while trying to manage a Division with an odd number of teams.  She had 3 teams to manage.  Being a Division Manager includes managing equal ice times, managing/organizing the coaches, the parents, organizing the referees for games, setting up games, managing tournaments and the list goes on.  This division held another tournament this year which was a very successful event for our Association and for our community.

Gen dealt with a lot of politics throughout the year, which for such a young Division, has me (AVMHA President) quite worried at this point.  We as parents need to stop and think before we act or react.  We have to remember that this sport is an extra-curricular sport and not the NHL or the pathway to the NHL.  It’s for kids to have fun, to make friends, to get some exercise and to learn the game of hockey.  We have to stop and think of the people who are volunteers and recognize that they are here to help out.  If we don’t like the job and appreciate what they are doing, then we need to shut up and step up to the plate ourselves.

Gen encouraged communication throughout the year.  Communication is huge  in this sport and she recognized that right away.  A quality that some don’t recognize right away or at all for that matter.  She has learned and grown a lot throughout this year and I (Meranda Vallee) can see her continuing to grow within this Association and I encourage her to do so.

Gen Connell received the most nominations from the membership for the Volunteer of the Year award.  Congratulations!


Above & Beyond – Carolynn Scott

2015-Volunteer-CarolynScott-7739Carolynn has been with our association for a few years now and has seen it all.  She has been involved in some way wherever she could in the past, including being a manager.  She then started to help me (Meranda Vallee) when I was Treasurer about 3-4 years ago.  She continued on and then was able to take over the management of our Gaming program from me.  She did up the reports, applications, deposits, keeping managers in line with the rules.  It’s a huge job and there is a lot to know.

Two years ago Carolynn was voted in as Treasurer and has increasingly been growing in that role over her term.  It’s not a position that you can just throw at someone, they have to grow into it.  Hence, why she started learning with me about 4 years ago.  There is a lot to know, there is a lot to learn and it is a job that never stops.

She has also taken steps to further her education, on her own time, so that she could properly fulfill the position.  This position takes a lot dedication, patience, learned knowledge, family time, personal time and being cooped up in an office for hours on end sorting out team accounts, rolling up coins, doing deposits, handing out receipts, doing Ref cheques, calling up parents for overdue fees or bounced cheques… the list goes on and it is usually not all fun.  It can be very stressful and does keep a person awake at night sometimes.  It is a full time job, one that is not paid by the way and one that 99.9% of normal people will not touch.

Carolynn had little to no experience when she first started out with me.  She is now fully in charge of Gaming and totally fulfills the Treasurer’s role with little to no help.  In doing this, she still fulfills her role as an Executive member and deals with a lot in that regard as well.  Her dedication to the Association is proof of her growth.  She is to a point now, that I am very comfortable and confident in her by saying, “OK, you’ve got this.”

Abby Nelson, front left with last year’s recipient, Zakeysha Corey and Female Hockey Coordinator, Eric Gagnon.

Jessica States was born in 1985 (30 years ago).  She was tragically killed in July 1996.  She was a typical PeeWee hockey player when there was not many female players in the association.  She had a passion for sports and loved to play hockey.  This award is presented annually to a female PeeWee player that has the sportsmanship and dedication like Jessica did.

This year’s recipient is Abby Nelson.  This is Abby’s second year playing PeeWee with the PeeWee Bulldogs.  She plays Defence and has been an asset to the team since earning a permanent spot in October.  She rarely misses a practice or a game and is reliable in her position.  Abby gets along well with her team mates.  She always carries a smile and a positive attitude.  Abby focuses on fitness and pushes her team mates to push harder both on and off the ice.  Congratulations Abby!

Surrey and North Island came out flying and ready to play in game 17 of the championship. The first period was fast but there were lots of shots at either end but the score at the end was 0-0.

Long and MacDonald connected again for a goal at 8:43 and that is how the score remained until 4:56 of the third when North Island’s Erin Murdoch scored unassisted and again at 4:28 from Marijke Campbell for the go ahead goal. Surrey pulled their goalie to try for the equalizer. With 29 seconds left in the game an interference call on North Island’s Tianna Squire gave them a 6 on 4 but they were unable to put it in the net. This was a very well played game by two evenly matched and talented teams. Shots on goal were 35 for Surrey and 37 for North Island. Penalty minute were 8 mins each. Excellent game.

8:00PM Richmond Ravens – 3   North Island – 4  

The Championship Game was the best game of the tournament! The teams came out flying and we had a real show of back and forth hockey!The North Island Impact hit the ice first, forming a line on either side of the bench gate for their graduating players to skate through. What a nice acknowledgement for the players finishing their minor hockey careers! When the puck dropped both teams took off flying and never let off. The North Island Impact got on the scoreboard first at 17:32 in the 1st period when Payton Bray buried the puck assisted by Shaylee McConnell. Richmond’s Yvonne Mikulcik answered at 15:02 unassisted. Olivia Knowles of North Island scored again at 6:06 from Erin Pickup and again Richmond answered with another goal from Mikulcik assisted by Briana Trottier at 4:47. North Island went ahead for the third time at 7:24 of the second (when Murdoch scored with assists from Lloyd and Savard) and Richmond countered again at 1:08 Tamara Wong, unassisted. There was no more scoring until half way thru the 3rd period but there was lots of action at both ends of the ice. At 9:49 Lisa Lloyd from Olivia Knowles broke the tie for the final time. Richmond skated hard on the puck to get the equalizer but it was not to be. This game was very exciting and entertaining. It had the fans on the edge of their seats and was clearly the best game of the tournament. What a show of talent! Congratulations to both teams!! Thanks to Salmon Arm Minor Hockey for doing an awesome job hosting and to the Salmon Arm community volunteers for helping out to make this championship so successful!

Bantam Bulldogs competitive in Classic

Tier 3 Bulldogs win bronze. Tier 4 Dogs fall in bronze medal game in annual New Year Classic tourney

 13-AV Times 500x50

The Tier 3 Alberni Valley Bantam Bulldogs won bronze in their annual New Year Classic over the weekend, while the Tier 4 Bulldogs suffered a double overtime loss to finish fourth.

The 12-team tournament at the Alberni Valley Multiplex featured five teams in the B division and seven in the A division.

The Victoria Ice Hawks won gold in the B Division, beating the Tier 3 Nanaimo Clippers.

The Tier 4 Bulldogs started the tournament Jan. 2 with a 7-1 loss to the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies, with Ivan Cheng scoring Alberni’s only goal. Matt Ursel won player of the game for the local team.

They followed that up with a 3-3 tie against North Vancouver, as Cameron McCurdy scored twice after Isaac MacDonald opened scoring for the Tier 4 Dogs. McCurdy was also named player of the game.

In their next game, the Tier 4 Bulldogs took on Nanaimo, and this game ended in another tie, 4-4, after coming back from a 3-1 deficit.

Linden Kailer-Dore scored Alberni’s opener before McCurdy, Carter Lee and Andrew Check all scored in the second period that ended in a 4-4 tie, and neither team could score in the third.

Jayden Villafane was named player of the game for Alberni in the tie.

The Tier 4 Dogs then fell 10-5 to the eventual B Division champion Victoria Ice Hawks after falling behind 4-0 in the first period and McCurdy and Cheng also buried goals in the third. Foster Martin was the player of the game for Alberni.

That set up the bronze medal game between the Tier 4 Bulldogs and Juan de Fuca.

The Grizzlies led 1-0 after the first period, and 3-2 after the second as Lee and Hunter White got the Bulldogs on the board in the middle frame.

Juan de Fuca took a 4-2 lead early in the third, but the Tier 4 Dogs fought back with goals from Chris O’Laney and Lee. However, the Grizzlies would score in double overtime to take bronze. Jack Unwin was the Bulldogs player of the game.

The Tier 3 Bulldogs began their tournament on Friday and in the opener they beat the Oceanside Generals 6-3. Ayden Brossoit scored his team’s first goal before the Bulldogs added three in the second, on goals from Tynan Smith, Noah Fatur and Kyle Hodgson, to take a 4-0 lead.

The Tier 3 Bulldogs gave up three goals in the third, but also scored two empty net goals off the sticks of Wyatt Selva and Brossoit to seal the win, just before Colton Lloyd was named player of the game.

The Tier 3 Bulldogs record, however, fell to 1-1 after an 8-2 loss to Abbotsford in Game 2. One goal came from Brossoit, and the other from Fatur. Brossoit was named player of the game in the loss.

The Tier 3 Bulldogs got back in the win column in their next game, a 3-1 win over North Vancouver.

Connor Sabiston put Alberni up 1-0 in the first and was later named player of the game.

Colton Lloyd and Sabiston both scored in the second period before a scoreless third gave the Bulldogs the win.

The Tier 3 Bulldogs next tied the Nanaimo Clippers 3-3, giving up a 2-0 first period lead. Lloyd and Selva (player of the game) scored in the first, and Ethan Jack in the third.

That set up a bronze medal match up for the Tier 3 Bulldogs with the Cowichan Valley Capitals.

After leading 1-0 after the second period, Cowichan tied it up in the third. Sabiston and Fatur, however, propelled their team to a two-goal third period lead before an empty netter gave the Bulldogs the bronze.

Minor hockey is heating up the ice this season

13-AV Times 500x50


While most Alberni Valley Minor Hockey Association teams are competing in tournaments over the winter break, they all take a break from league play for the holidays.

So far this season, all of the minor Bulldogs teams are competing hard in their respective divisions, with two teams playing above their Tier 3 classifications. In Peewee, the Bulldogs are in second place in the Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association’s Tier 3 league, tied with Tri Port with nine points through eight games.

The Peewee A Bulldogs have a record of four wins, three losses and one tie, with 36 goals for and 37 against. Their biggest win of the season game in a 9-2 victory over the Victoria Racquet Club’s Tier 2 squad.

Their next game is on Jan. 11, on the road against Cowichan Valley, which has a four-point lead in the standings over Alberni.

The AVMHA this season was able to dress two bantam rep teams.

The Bantam A Bulldogs are played up a division in Tier 2 and have been successful so far, sitting in third place in the seventeam league, with a record of 5-3-3. Despite sitting three points back of Comox Valley Tier 1 and two points behind Campbell River Tier 2, the Bantam A Bulldogs have two games in hand on Campbell River and one on Comox. Their last game was a 5-1 win over Campbell River.

They next play at home on Jan. 19 against Powell River.

The Bantam B Bulldogs are in third place in the five-team Island Tier 4 league with a record of 4-6-0. However, they are the only Tier 4 tam in the league. At the break, the Bantam B Bulldogs are trailing first-place Saanich by nine points.

The Midget A Bulldogs are once again playing in the Island’s top league, the VIAHA midget Tier 1 (two tiers above their classification).

However, after winning the Tier 3 provincial championship at home last season, they are not having the season they would have hoped to enjoy so far.

Through nine games, they have a record of 1-6-2. Their next home game is on Sunday, Jan. 12 against the Victoria Racquet Club.

And while the local rep teams take a break from league play, the AVMHA is hosting two bantam tournaments this winter break.

The first, the Bantam Recreational Tournament, runs from Dec. 28 to 30 at the Multiplex while the second, the New Year Classic Bantam Tournament takes over the Multiplex from Jan. 3 to 5.

(Report from Mike Doucette) Friday, our Bantam A team won their first game 3-1. All of our games are vs the Whitehorse Mustangs Bantam A team. Today they came from behind to win 3-2.

It is more of a jamboree than a tourney and it is amazing.

The boys have been DOG SLEDDING and this afternoon the boys got to go SNOW MOBILING and OUTDOOR HOCKEY on one of the billet families outdoor backyard rinks. The people here have been fantastic. A once in a lifetime amazing experience.

    Bantam team successful on Whitehorse road trip

     13-AV Times 500x50

    Members of the Alberni ValleyRyder Contracting/GDM Log Boom & Sort Bantam ‘A’ Bulldogs have returned from the trip of a lifetime, a four-game road trip to the Yukon for a series of games against the Bantam ‘A’ Whitehorse Mustangs. The Bulldogs won three of the four games.

    “It is more of a jamboree than a tourney and it is amazing,” said Bulldogs head coach Mike Doucette from the road.

    The Bulldogs left Vancouver on a flight Thursday night, and won their first game on Friday against the Mustangs 3-1.  Shaylee McConnell, Ayden Brossoit and Noah Fatur scored for Alberni.  In Game 2, the Bulldogs came from behind to win 3-2. Brossoit and Fatur both scored their second goals of the trip in that game, and Reilly Kozocari netted his first goal of the season in the win.

    Doucette called it “a once in a lifetime, amazing experience.”  The third game, on Saturday evening, was won by Whitehorse, 7-2.

    On Sunday morning, Alberni won the game 3-1, with goals from Wyatt Selva, McConnell and Fatur.

    “For a lot of them, it was their first really big road trip experience,” said team manager Stefanie Weber.

    “Most of them are used to playing hockey every weekend, most of them have played rep hockey for a number of years but they’ve never really had the opportunity to do anything on this scale.” Weber added there were a few players who had never been on a plane before.

    “The other big thing for the kids was the billet experience,” Weber said. “That was something unique. “It’s something that we had when we grew up, that’s how we always travelled when it came to sports, but its not prevalent in today’s world. They all loved it. The families were incredible.”

    With three wins, the players were also happy with their success on the ice during the trip. As well, all of the games stayed controlled, despite the same two teams playing high-calibre hockey games against each other four times in one weekend.

    “It was just good, clean hockey,” Weber said.
