Windsor - November 5, 2014 - President and Head Coach Bob Boughner announced today the club has named
third-year defenceman Patrick Sanvido as it's new captain.
In addition, Chris Marchese and Slater Doggett have been tabbed as assistant
captains, while Trevor Murphy (home) and Cristiano DiGiacinto (away) will
rotate wearing an 'A'.
Murphy and DiGiacinto will flip roles, as jerseys worn during home and away
games change as of January 1st.
“Patrick is a drafted pro, and a guy that has come a long way both on and off the
ice,” Boughner said. “It was pretty unanimous decision. Right from the
beginning, coming into training camp, we had our eye on Sandy as a guy that
might be our captain. After 15 games, the way he's handled himself, has been
impressive. We're proud to have him as our captain moving forward.”
Sanvido, 18, was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the 7th Round, 195th overall, at
the 2014 NHL Draft in Philadelphia back in June. Sanvido has played in 138
regular season and four playoff games, all as a Windsor Spitfire.
