Connor McDavid Named Captain

Erie, Pennsylvania – The Erie Otters have named Connor McDavid captain for the 2014-15 Ontario Hockey League season, with Cory Genovese, Dylan Strome and Joel Wigle serving as alternates.

            “Connor was the leader on the team, who guys looked up to,” said Head Coach Kris Knoblauch. “He’s certainly very competitive, and a guy who wants to win and do the right thing. Obviously, he’ll have success personally but he also wants the team to succeed greatly.”

            McDavid becomes the 10th full time captain in team history. He takes over the captain vacancy left by Connor Brown, who held the title for the last two years.

            “It’s a tremendous honor to be named captain of this team,” McDavid said. “You look at some of the guys before me, (Connor Brown) and those guys, it’s something that is pretty special to me.”

            McDavid, who is eligible for the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, and the Erie Otters open their season Wednesday night in Saginaw against the Spirit at 7:11 p.m.
