Klassen suspended one game by the BCHL

Alberni Valley Bulldogs forward Chase Klassen was suspended one game by the BC Hockey League Department of Player Safety on Monday for receiving his second fighting major and game misconduct of the season.

The penalties were assessed at the 19:59 mark of the third period of Sunday’s 7-2 loss to the Victoria Grizzlies. Klassen got into a scrap with Grizzlies forward Alex DiPaolo.

The 2002-born centre has 10 goals and 20 points in 19 games as a rookie for the Bulldogs this season. He will miss Alberni Valley’s season finale against Nanaimo on Tuesday. Klassen is eligible to return to the Dogs line-up for the first game of the 2021-22 season.

Alami commits to Boston College

Defenseman Cade Alami (four goals, nine assists in 58 games with Surrey in 2019-20) announced his commitment to Boston College for this September on Twitter on Monday.

The 2001-born blueliner from Bedford, New York had a goal and five points in 16 games with the Jersey Hitmen of the National Collegiate Development Conference this past season.

Boily signs extension in France for 2021-22

Goaltender Émilien Boily (1-0-0, 2.00 GAA, .913 SV% in one game with Penticton in 2015-16) has signed a one-year contract extension with Valenciennes of FFHG, Division 2, which is the third level of pro hockey in France.

The 23-year-old from Durham-Sud, Quebec signed with Valenciennes last October but didn’t get into any games because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He spent most of the 2019-20 season in the Quebec Senior AAA League, posting an 11-4 record with a 3.25 goals-against-average, and a .923 save percentage in 18 games.
