LETHBRIDGE, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes Hockey Club announced their 2021 leadership group on Thursday.
It’s led by Dino Kambeitz who has been named the 29th captain in franchise history. Logan Barlage, Alex Cotton, Justin Hall and Mitch Prowse will serve as alternate captains.
21 year old Kambeitz was an alternate captain for the Hurricanes in 2019-2020. The Parker, Colorado product appeared in 52 games last year with the ‘Canes after being acquired from the Victoria Royals. He registered a career-high in all three offensive categories with 16 goals, 13 assists and 29 points, along with a plus-6 rating and 49 penalty minutes.
“It’s very exciting and an honour to be named Captain. I hope to leave a good legacy and leave the jersey in a better place. There have been a lot of great names before me, so hopefully I can fill those shoes and lead the team the way they have. I hope to lead by example so that the young guys can follow, and I hope that my play and work-ethic will speak for itself.” -Dino Kambeitz
Head Coach Brent Kisio says “it was a pretty easy decision for us to name Dino captain. Ever since we acquired Dino, he’s been a leader for our group and he’s a guy that works hard and does things right. We think Dino will have a great supporting cast with Justin, Mitch, Logan and Alex and Dino is the right guy to lead us.”
The Hurricanes open the 2021 regular season on Friday, February 26th when they visit the Edmonton Oil Kings at 7pm. The ‘Canes will welcome the Oil Kings on Saturday, February 27th at the ENMAX Centre.
