Revelstoke Grizzlies defenceman Dalton Irvine is headed to the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Lloydminster Bobcats.
The Revelstoke native is excited for the next chapter of his career and to get things started. Irvine feels that the Bobcats program will be a good fit because of their busy schedule – a 58-game regular season with development-focused practices.
Irvine, 18, completed his second season with the Grizzlies in the KIJHL and felt he played well. He improved in the both zones, but saw greater improvement on the offensive side. In 81 career regular season games, Irvine finished with 14 goals and 65 points. He added nine assists in 15 playoffs games.
Irvine had an awesome experience with the Grizzlies, which he said is a “great organization.”
“It was really good,” says Irvine. “They were really professional.”
The six-foot, 170 pound defenceman chose to play in the KIJHL over midget as a 16-year-old and says the competition helped him, as well as the coaching staff.
The Bobcats have competed for one national championship, losing to the BCHL’s West Kelowna Warriors in 2016, when they hosted.
