The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are pleased to announce that Jamie McCaig
has joined the Bulldogs in the role of Goaltending Coach.
McCaig brings 12 years of coaching experience to the position,
including time spent working with the WHL’s Kootenay Ice, the BCHL’s
Merritt Centennials and the AJHL’s Spruce Grove Saints. Jamie played
in the BCHL with Prince George, Penticton and Merritt before embarking
on a successful university career split between the University of
Brandon and the University of Lethbridge in USports. He then suited up
professionally in the ECHL with the Alaska Aces and Victoria Salmon
Kings before turning to coaching.
“By adding Jamie to our program we’re giving our goalies one of the
best and highly respected goalie coaches around,” says Bulldogs head
coach Joe Martin. “Jamie and I have worked together in junior hockey
for eight years, including a few events with Hockey Canada. I’m behind
Jamie 100% on what he can do for our tandem in net going forward.”
McCaig was recently named the Director of Operation for Team Canada
West at the 2019 World Junior A Challenge in Dawson Creek after
serving as their Goaltending Coach the previous two years.
The Bulldogs will open Main Camp at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on
Monday, August 19th and open their exhibition schedule at home against
Powell River on Thursday, August 22.
