The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announced that they have committed to 19-year old forward Jacob MacDonald to the line-up for next season.
MacDonald, from Burlington Ontario, spent the 2019-2020 season with the Hamilton Kilty B’s in the GOJHL. MacDonald’s season was simply outstanding as he notched 33 goals and added 44 assists for 77 points. Those totals earned him the Russel Masterson Memorial Award as the league’s MVP and the Brent Rubel Memorial Award as Rookie of the Year. MacDonald spent the previous 3 seasons with Blyth Academy.
“We’re really excited to add a player of Jacob’s calibre,” said Bulldogs head coach & general manager Joe Martin. “He was the captain for his club in Hamilton last season and for us, adding players with leadership and a competitive drive was really important. Bulldogs fans will enjoy watching Jacob play.”
“I’m very excited to be able to join such an amazing organization,” said MacDonald. “The opportunity that lies ahead of me is one I’ve always wanted. To help the Bulldogs win and earn a Division 1 scholarship. Everything I’ve heard about Port Alberni has been positive from the community to the fans and more. I can’t wait to get things going.”
Welcome to Port Alberni and the Bulldogs Jacob!
