Broncos Name Lowry CaptainSep 20, 2012 - 14:19 GMT
Swift Current Bronco General Manager and Head Coach, Mark Lamb, announced that forward Adam Lowry has been named the team’s captain for the 2012-2013 season, while Richard Nedomlel, Reece Scarlett and Josh Derko have been named alternates based on a team vote. Lowry will become the 26th captain in Broncos franchise history, succeding Taylor Vause who captained the team in the 2011-2012 season.
Selected by the Broncos in the 4th round (78th overall) of the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft, Lowry is entering his fourth season with the club. The 6’5”, 201-pound forward was named one of four alternate’s for the Broncos last year. Unfortunately his 2011-2012 campaign was shortened due to injury, but he was still over a point-per-game performer putting up 37 points (12-25-37) in 36 games played. In his 2010-11 season Lowry posted a career-high 45 points (18-27-45) in 66 games played. He wrapped up his '10-11 campaign on a high-note as he was taken by the Winnipeg Jets in the 3rd round (67th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Adam Lowry and the Swift Current Broncos will kick off their 2012-13 season at Mosaic Place Friday as they take on the Moose Jaw Warriors.
