Bailey named Team Captain
Thu Oct 2nd, 2008
Cranbrook, BC -- Jeff Chynoweth, General Manager of the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club, today announced the club has named 20-year-old Forward Andrew Bailey as Captain of the 2008-2009 team. Bailey becomes the 13th Captain in the history of the ICE franchise. (John Kachur 1996-1997, Steve McCarthy 1998-2000, Mike Green 2000-2001, Dean Arsene 2000-2001, Jason Jaffray 2001-2002, Jarret Stoll 2001-2002, Colin Sinclair 2002-2003, Nigel Dawes 2003-2005, Adam Cracknell 2005-2006, Ryan Russell 2006-2007, Steve DaSilva 2007-2008). The Assistant Captains will be Dustin Sylvester, John Negrin, and Ian Barteaux.
We have many players on our club who are leaders both on and off the ice. We feel Andrew best exemplifies what type of player our organization is looking for in a Captain. There are a number of players who could wear letters, but unfortunately, only four can wear them in a game. Andrew is going into his fourth season with the club and understands the standard of excellence we strive to accomplish added Chynoweth.
Next home action for the ICE is Friday against Swift Current at 7:00 pm and Sunday against Kelowna at 6:00 pm. Tickets are available at the Kootenay ICE Office and Kootenay Collectibles.
