The Victoria Cougars have named John Kretzschmar as their captain.
Kretzschmar, 20, takes over the captaincy from Sam McMullen who graduated last season.
There will also be seven assistant captains.
When Victoria wears its black jerseys, Ryan Buse, Nathan Looysen, and Austin Wilk will have the “A” on the front.
When the Cougars wear their red jerseys, Brett Lervold, Nick Lyons, and Lane Vandewetering will have the “A” on the front.
And when Victoria wears its white jerseys, Ryan Carson, Buse, and Looysen will have the “A” on the front.
Fortunate to have such a strong leadership group, Mark Van Helvoirt and his coaching staff wanted to recognize the leadership skills of these players.
