he Nipigon Elks Juniors are excited to announce their leadership group for the upcoming 2022-2023 season.
"Leaders are the special people you can rely on and who accept the responsibility and privilege to be upfront," commented head coach/GM Malcolm Sutherland. "They are unique individuals and are exceptional in many ways. Our group of leaders for this season are those types of people."
Carter Hargreaves has been named Captain of the Elks 2022-2023 squad and will be joined by Assistant Captains Jeff McMenemy and Logan Doucet. Hargreaves and McMenemy are returning players but Doucet is an 18U graduate who saw regular action in the LJHL for the Elks last season as an affiliate player.
Also joining the leaders for the Elks is the league's top goaltender from last season, Zach Prenger, Prenger is a 21-year-old veteran with the squad.
The Elks have had a busy off-season recruiting and adding new faces to their team and are promising a new look for the up and coming season.
The team's coaching staff congratulate the four players and look forward to a good start this early October with the home opener scheduled for October 7 vs the Thunder Bay Bandits at the Nipigon Arena.
