Sorry I’m a couple of days late on getting a blog post up about this, but I Tweeted about it when it happened. The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have eliminated their logjam in the crease by trading 20-year-old goaltender Matt Larose to the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Dauphin Kings for future considerations.

The deal hasn’t been posted on the BCHL website and Larose is still on the Bulldogs roster, but the organization confirmed the move on both Twitter and their website.

To Dauphin Kings:
G Matt Larose (92)
To Alberni Valley Bulldogs:
Future Considerations

Here’s the release from the ‘Dogs website:


The Alberni Valley Bulldogs would like to announce that the organization has traded the CJHL rights of 92-born goalie Matt Larose to the Dauphin Kings of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

Larose was acquired in October of last season in a trade that saw him come to the Bulldogs along with 94-born defenseman Daniel Delbianco and the CJHL rights to 93-born defenseman Eric Walker in exchange for 92-born defenseman Tanner Hicks, 93-born defenseman Marley Keca, and 92-born forward Taylor House. Eric Walker started the 2011/12 season with Northern Michigan University in the NCAA before leaving to split last season between the Vancouver Giants and Swift Current Broncos.

The Bulldogs’ hockey operations worked hard over the last two months to find Larose an opportunity where he will have a chance to be a number one goalie in his 20-year-old season after the team aquired 92-born goalie Jay Deo and signed 95-born goalie Brad Rebagliati.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs would like to wish Matt all the best in the 2012/13 season. Matt has strong character and always conducted himself as a professional.
