BCHL Team Sold June 27, 2012 7:28 AM

The Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society has reached an agreement in principle with Okanagan Hockey Schools to buy the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the B.C. Hockey League. Okanagan Hockey Schools (OHS) is the majority shareholder in the team.

The Bulldogs had been on the open market with a very real threat to be moved at the end of the 2012-2013 season.

The Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society began their move to purchase the team some months ago when it was learned the team could be sold and moved. PAJHS created two initial opportunities for people to pledge their financial support for this project prior to June 1st. Donors Club – which included a tax-deductible $200 donation or multiple $200 donations to be part of the Donors Club permanent registry, and Founders Club – which included a tax-deductible $5,000 donation or multiple $5,000 donations to be part of the Founders Club permanent registry.

The funding was raised so quickly that many in the junior hockey world were surprised. Now that terms have been agreed to and a contract signed, the parties involved are now preparing to refer the sale to the BCHL for review.

PAJHS has asked current directors Andy Oakes, from OHS and Dennis See to stay on as advisors to ensure a smooth transition of ownership. This will also provide continuity for players, staff and volunteers.

Having recently signed home town product Dylan Haugen, the Bulldogs have been having some very good days recently.
