The Nanaimo Clippers have announced that White Rock native, Ethan Scardina, has been named Captain for the 2019-2020 Season. 

Scardina, who is entering into his second season with the Clippers, has been a leader in the dressing room since he arrived last season according to Clippers Head Coach Darren Naylor “When we traded for Scar [Scardina] the minute he arrived I knew he was a born leader. He leads on and off the ice with all his teammates and is an incredibly skilled hockey player that we are very lucky to have playing for us.” 

Last season, Scardina lead the Clippers with the most points averaging over one point per game. In his BCHL career, he has played in a total of 102 games, tallying a total of 82 points. 

Clippers Owner, Wes Mussio, agreed with Coach Naylor’s comments “I have been impressed watching Scardina develop over the last year since he joined us from the Cowichan Valley Capitals. With the number of key returning players from last year, it was a hard decision but Ethan stood out as being a great choice to lead the player management group. Ethan is a leader by example player and with the effort he puts in on and off the ice, we are expecting him to push the other players all season.” 

The Nanaimo Clippers will announce the Alternate Captains in the coming days.
