The Sudbury Wolves announced their leadership team for the 2019-20 season at Tuesday night’s pep rally at the New Sudbury Centre.
Head Coach Cory Stillman made the announcement that overage forwards Macauley Carson and Shane Bulitka will co-captain the team and David Levin and Emmett Serensits will wear alternates.
“Before starting the season on Thursday, I am happy to name Shane Bulitka and Macauley Carson as co-captains of our team,” said Stillman. “Both Shane and Macauley have displayed the leadership we want for our culture as Sudbury Wolves.”
Co-captains Bulitka and Carson are both entering their fifth and final year in the OHL.
“I am honoured to be named Captain alongside Macauley. I am very excited for the opportunity to help lead the team and am looking forward to getting the season started," said Bulitka.
“It’s going to be a special season being able to share the captaincy with a guy I came into the league with five years ago,” said Carson. “I am proud to be a leader for a team that I think has all the tools to make it very far this year.”
The Wolves have a strong trio of overage forwards that the young players will be able to look up to.
All four players named to the leadership group are hardworking and lead by example.
David Levin is also entering his fifth season and is coming off his best offensive production at a point per game in 2018-19.
Serensits has continued to impress with his effort and commitment on and off the ice since the day he arrived after being the Wolves’ first ever U18 selection in the 2017 OHL U18 draft.
