Bulldogs acquire Assam

The Blackfalds Bulldogs have acquired 2003-born forward Kobe Assam from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (BCHL) in exchange for future considerations.

“Kobe is a strong power forward with good speed,” said Blackfalds Bulldogs Assistant GM Adam West. “We are excited to add a player with his size and skill level that he showed in the CSSHL U18 prep league as a 16-year-old.”

The Kelowna, B.C. product has recorded four points and 32 penalty minutes in 20 games with Alberni Valley this season.

Prior to his time in the BCHL, Assam played for the Okanagan HA Red U18 Prep team during the 2019-20 season. In 33 games, he registered 35 points.

It’s expected Assam will make his debut with Blackfalds this week.

Meantime, the Bulldogs look for their second straight win Wednesday when they host the top-ranked Brooks Bandits at the Eagle Builders Centre. Wednesday’s matchup gets underway at 7 p.m.

Following Wednesday’s contest, the Bulldogs host Spruce Grove Friday and Fort McMurray Saturday.
