The Kitchener Rangers have named Connor Bunnaman as their next captain

He will start the 2017-2018 season with the C on his chest.

The Kitchener Rangers have announced their pick for the club’s 53rd team captain: our very own Connor Bunnaman.

Bunnaman was a 2016 fourth round pick for the Philadelphia Flyers (109th overall). Tonight he will dress in his 200th regular season OHL game; in 199 games, he’s tallied up a solid 63 goals and 105 points.

Impressive, but numbers aren’t the only factor in being named captain. According to his coaching staff, it’s his leadership on and off the ice that influenced their decision, as well as the level of respect his teammates have for him. He displays all the qualities of a true leader. The Rangers are certainly in good hands.
