Duncan, BC – The Cowichan Capitals have named Adam Osczevski as the team’s Captain for the 2015-16 season.Arriving in the Cowichan Valley via trade early last season from the West Kelowna Warriors, Osczevski had an immediate positive impact on the team and quickly assumed a leadership role.
“Adam is what you want the Capitals identity to be all about,” said Head Coach and General Manager Bob Beatty.”He is a spirited, hard working player that plays both ends of the ice with intensity and passion. He has the courage to block a shot, take and give a hit, or stick up for his teammates. Most importantly, he will stand up for what he believes in and not only challenge his teammates and coaches to be better, but hold himself accountable to the highest standard.”Entering his third year in the BCHL and second with the Capitals, the 19 year-old from Martensville, Saskatchewan is coming off a solid sophomore season that saw him post 13 goals and 11 assists along with 26 penalty minutes in 54 games.”I try to hold guys accountable and I try to hold myself as accountable as possible,” said Osczevksi.
It’s a season full of anticipation and excitement for Capitals fans and the team itself with expectations being raised.”I can hopefully help guys get better and be a good leader. We’re getting ready for a good season, we’re going to get a lot of wins this year and we’re going to work our tails off to get there.”
The Capitals open up the 2015-16 BCHL regular season Friday night hosting the Victoria Grizzlies at the Island Savings Centre. Tickets are on-sale now at the Cowichan Ticket Centre or by calling 250-748-PLAY.
