Bulldogs forward Layne Loomer wins AJHL Rookie of the Week

Bulldogs clinch playoff spot

The Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) announced Blackfalds Bulldogs forward Layne Loomer won the AJHL Rookie of the Week.

From Dec. 29 to Jan. 8 Loomer led all rookies with seven points in five games. Against Olds on Dec. 30, Loomer had a four-point night en route to an 11-3 at home against the Grizzlys.

The next day on a New Year’s Eve rematch in Olds Loomer added two assists in a 6-2 victory and on Jan. 6 in a 4-0 win over the Okotoks Oilers, the rookie registered an assist on Brendan Ross’ opening goal.

The Bulldogs’ four-game win streak came to an end last Saturday against the Okotoks Oilers but remain tied for second place in South Division and clinched a playoff spot.

This weekend the Bulldogs will hit the road with games in Whitecourt on Friday and Grande Prairie on Saturday.
