Vince Bitonti has been named Captain of the Castlegar Rebels

In what seems to be a trend in naming defenceman captain (Daniel Petten, Aaron Petten, Erik Alden, etc.), Bitonti is entering his 3rd season with the Rebels. Vince has 81 points in 99 games played as a Rebel. Prior to that Vince played in the NWCAA in Calgary, AB.

Vince has shown through camp and the start of the season that he has the qualities and drive of a leader both on and off the ice. We are very comfortable with the leadership group chosen for the 2017/2018 campaign and believe these four young men will shoulder the leadership burden extremely well.

Commented Assistant General Manager Parker Hickey. The rest of the leadership group consists of John Moeller, Ed Lindsey and Everett Hicks as Alternate Captains
