Bruins name Froese as captain
The Estevan Bruins have announced their captain and alternate captains for the upcoming season.
Forward Tanner Froese, a local product who is in his third year with the team, has been named the captain.
"Everything that he does is done properly, and the players could use him as a role model," said head coach and GM Chris Lewgood.
Forward Austin Daae, another local player who has split time between the Bruins and the WHL the last two years, is one of the alternate captains. Forward Hudson Morrison and defenceman David Robertson are the other alternates.
The Bruins will open the season tonight on the road against the Melville Millionaires. The return match will be Friday night in Estevan for the Bruins' home opener. Pre-game festivities, with fireworks and ceremonies, will begin at 7:15 p.m. The game will start at 7:30 p.m.
"The one thing I can guarantee you is we'll see a good effort," said Lewgood. "Our players are going to work hard, follow a plan and compete every shift."
