Bulldogs send WHL veteran Schaufler to Sherwood Park of the AJHL


The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have traded 2000-born defenseman Loeden Schaufler to the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

The Dewinton, Alberta product notched a pair of assists in five games with the Bulldogs during the BCHL’s training season last fall.

Schaufler played 39 games in the Western Hockey League with the Edmonton Oil Kings last season, scoring three goals and four points. He also played for the AJHL’s Spruce Grove Saints to start 2019-20 and posted five goals and 13 points in 16 games.

The Oil Kings released him last May and the Bulldogs acquired his junior A rights in June.

He won a WHL championship with Prince Albert in 2019, playing six playoff games along the way. The Raiders were his third of four WHL stops after also playing 20 games with Seattle and one game with Kootenay in 2018-19.

As a 16-year-old rookie in 2017-18, Schaufler posted six assists in 32 games with the Ice.
