The Langley Rivermen are proud to announce Brendan Budy as our captain for this upcoming season. Brendan is entering his second season with the Rivermen after an impressive rookie season where he posted 15 goals, 30 assists in 56 games played.
“Brendan epitomizes what being a Rivermen is, his infatuation with getting better both on and off the ice is whats going to push his teammates this season, as it already has throughout training camp.” said Bobby Henderson
“It’s a huge honour to be captain, having someone like Cooper Leitch last year to lead us and mentor me throughout the season was really key in my development as a leader. I feel like this year I’ve come into camp with a lot of the same methods I learned from the leadership group. Last year, as a 16yr old they made the transition easy for me. My coaches and teammates pushed me to take pride in being held to a higher standard and thats what drove me this off season. We have a great group here, I’m looking forward to getting this season underway.”
Brendan is committed to play hockey at the University of Denver NCAA.
The Rivermen kick off their season Friday September 8th against the Surrey Eagles at the South Surrey Arena.
Join us at home September 16 for our home opener at The Lodge as we take on the Chilliwack Chiefs.
Puck drops at 7pm.
