Roy named Captain

From today's Daily Gleaner:
Meanwhile, the St. Thomas Tommies under head coach Mike Eagles, also begin their regular schedule on the road Friday against the Universite de Moncton Aigles Bleus at 7 o'clock. The game can be heard on CKTP 95.7....

....The Tommies return home Saturday night to face UPEI beginning at 7 o'clock at the Lady Beaverbrook Rink. Dalhousie plays at Saint Mary's and Acadia takes on St. FX in Saturday's other league games.

Eagles said yesterday that fifth year centre Justin Roy of Harvey will wear the captain's 'C' with the Tommies this season.
Roy certainly has the seniority to wear the "C" this season. But is he the best choice to lead the Tommies? What do you think? Post your thoughts in the comments.


  1. To be quite honest, Roy is a very good choice to have wearing the C. Having a guy who has leadership qualities and works hard every shift and he is the senior player on a very young team is a perfect choice. If Bowers had stayed, i would have picked him but nothing wrong with Roysie.

  2. If nothing else it is the obvious choice but he had better lead by example. He better be able to pull the room together and not divide it. Hopefully this honour will do Justin good. Best of Luck Justin we are depending on you.

  3. It did not take a rocket scientist
    to figure out he would be captain.
    I think he is good choice and it may help his play although he is already is a good player.
    I do not agree with the video guy,I would not have given captain to Justin Bowers,he was not as great as everyone seem to think.
