Dodd`s junior career started in 2017 with 100 Mile House Wranglers of the KIJHL. He would then join Merritt Centennials in 2018, followed by a trade to the Swan Valley Stampeders (MJHL) after a season and a half.
“I am proud to announce my commitment to attend school and play hockey at Bryn Athyn College,” announced Frazer Dodd. “I would like to thank my billets, coach’s, teammates, and the people of Swan River who made my last year of Junior Hockey a special one. I am looking forward to taking on the new hockey, and school challenges for the upcoming year. Again, I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Swan Valley and have friends and memories that will last a life time. Finally, a special thank you to the Stampeder Coaching staff – Barry Wolff, Suneil Karod, and Darren Webster, for believing in me and helping me in my development as a player and a person.”
The Swan Valley Stampeders continue to provide a great platform that allows the players to stay focused and committed to their long term goals of making it to the next level.
“We are proud to welcome Frazer and his family to our program,” said Lion’s Head Coach Andrew Burke. “Frazer was a pleasure to work with during the recruiting process. We are excited to add him into our lineup as he has a knack for scoring, and making his teammates around him better.
