?I am both excited and pleased to lead this year?s squad onto the floor,? Sombrotto said. ?I know that we will do our very best to work together and make for a great season.?
In appointing him to the position, Brady stated, ?Steve is a positive player and one that everyone looks up to. He tries to help players in every way that he can and is our selection for captain this season.?
In addition, defenseman Paul Talmo returns for another year as alternate captain with newly acquired Roy Colsey also serving as an alternate.
