We’re counting down the days until Princeton hockey’s season opener by featuring a different player each day. Since there’s 21 days until the season’s start, today’s spotlight is on defenseman Marlon Sabo.
What you need to know: With Alberni Valley facing elimination in the second round of the BCHL playoffs in March, Sabo scored the game-winning overtime goal against the Victoria Grizzlies.
Last year: With the Bulldogs, Sabo scored 10 points (2g, 8a) over 37 games. In 14 playoff contests, he added one goal and one assist.
BCHL: Sabo spent both the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons with Alberni Valley. In his first season with the Bulldogs, the defenseman scored five points (1g, 4a) in 56 regular-season games. Sabo appeared in six games with the Cowichan Valley Capitals in 2010-11.
