    Michael St. Croix… what is his Rangers eligibility in the near future?

  2. Tim B says:

    How come WHL teams have 1 captain and 4 assistant captains?

    • Tim B says:

      The captain is Brenden Walker. The 4 assistants are:
      Lukas Sutter
      Dunan Siemens
      Josh Nicholls
      Darren Dietz

      I would have thought it would be 2 adsistants and 1 captain or 3 assistants and no captain

    Expect St. Croix to be in the AHL next year as he turns 20 in April and really there is nothing else for him to do at the WHL level.

    Siemens isn’t wearing a letter for the Blades this season. He was last year’s captain but Lorne Molleken decided to put the “C” on Walker who was allowed to name his own assistants.

    As for the Oil Kings, they have 4 assistants as 2 wear the “A” for road games while the others for home games.

    St. Croix wears it for the home games.

    As for why there are so many, it is more about spreading the responsibilities of leadership around as each team really handles it differently and a couple of teams don’t name captains until mid-season or not at all.

      Don’t get too excited over stats for 20 year olds in the CHL. Remember, they are the old guys playing against 16-19 year olds.

    When they are scoring goals the way he is You do and you can. It isnt easy scoring Shorthanded goals in any level. And you know that. He has speed. He has skill and he can finnish.

    That you get excited about. Its not like we have 9 guys in the CHL scoring like that.
