Caps announce newcomers

Players come from junior A, junior B and U.S. high school ranks

The Cowichan Valley Capitals have announced a series of new acquisitions in recent weeks, adding players from a range of different sources as they build toward the 2019-20 B.C. Hockey League season.

Defenceman Maxime Dumas joins the Caps from St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, where he played in the Lakes Region Hockey League. The 19-year-old blueliner from Quebec City checks in at six feet and 205 pounds and posted seven points on two goals and five assists in 27 points last season.

Dumas will be joined in the Cowichan defence corps by Cullen Ferguson, formerly of the Hamilton Kilty B’s from the junior B Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League. A six-foot, 180-pound product of Glanbrook, Ont., Ferguson put up 19 points on four goals and 15 assists in 41 games this past season.

Andy Bridgewater has committed to play for the Caps after spending last season with the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Calgary Mustangs, who decided not to operate a team this season. A 19-year-old Calgary native, Bridgewater is five-foot-10 and 175 pounds, and recorded 33 points on 10 goals and 23 assists with the Mustangs in 2018-19.

All three new acquisitions are expected to join the team for main camp in August.
