Clippers go over the Hump to face the AV Bulldogs

The Clippers travel across the Hump today to play their first exhibition game against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. They hope to rebound from a loss last Saturday to the Victoria Grizzlies. The Bulldogs lost 7-1 last night at home to the same Grizzlies.

The Clippers stand with four points in four games (2-2-0), while the Bulldogs have four points in five games (2-3-0).

Leading the Clippers in scoring so far in exhibition is Sean Donaldson with 5 points. He’s tied with Tim Washe in goals with 2, and with Kyler Kovich and Trevor LeDonne in assists with 3. Jordan Naylor will get the start in net, posting a 2.65 GAA and a 0.930 save percentage.

Coach Darren Naylor commented: “After playing 6 straight against Victoria it will be nice to face a new opponent. We will be expecting to build on our overall team game and play within our systems. It’s important to get a fast start and be physical early.”

“They played last night and will be game ready, so we will need to be prepared. There will be a couple minor line up changes as we continue to look for combinations/chemistry.”

Game time is 7 p.m. and can be watched on www.HockeyTV.com or you can listen to the Bulldogs audio broadcast at The Peak 93.3.
