09/18/12 Saginaw Spirit Name Team Captain and Alternates for 2012-13 Season
With the opening of the Spirit’s 2012-13 OHL season kicking off Friday, September 21 in Guelph, the team has now appointed four veteran skaters as Captain and Assistants. The Spirit have announced that Vincent Trocheck will assume the captaincy of the team vacated by Brandon Saad, who held the position a season ago. The Florida Panthers prospect is coming off a season where he was second in the OHL in assists, and led the Spirit in scoring on the strength of an 85 point campaign. Trocheck, who inked an NHL contact this past spring, will be looking to carve his name into the Spirit record books this season as he is 57 points away from the franchise high in a career.
Also selected to wear letters for Saginaw this season are veterans Garret Ross, Steven Strong, and Eric Locke who will all be alternate captains. Ross has played his entire OHL career with the Spirit, hitting the 25 goal plateau for the first time in 2011-12. Ross was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the fifth round of June’s NHL Draft.
Strong will be starting his second full season on the Spirit blueline after being acquired from the Belleville Bulls last summer. Locke was also brought in through a trade this past January in a deal with the Barrie Colts. The former Colt and Windsor Spitfire was a 20 goal shooter in the 2011-12 season.
“As an organization we are looking for players who epitomize what we are about,” commented Saginaw Spirit Head Coach Greg Gilbert. “We believe in high compete levels, work ethic, commitment and sacrifice for the team. We felt that these four young men exemplify these values and what we stand for.”
