Westside Warriors Hockey

Berglund named Warriors captain

The Westside Warriors will look to Izaak Berglund to step up his leadership role this season.

The B.C. Hockey League club this week named the 20-year-old defenceman as their captain for the 2011-12 campaign.

Berglund, from Little Falls, Minn., inherits the captaincy from Alex Grieve who has graduated from the program and will play collegiate hockey this season at Bentley.

“It’s a great honour and privilege to be named captain” said Berglund. “I’m excited for this responsibility, and I’m going to do my best.”

The 6-foot-0, 205-pound blue-liner is expected to lead a strong and mobile defensive corps for Westside this year.

“As always, the big goal is to go to the RBC Cup and win a championship” Berglund said of the coming season. “It’s going to take some work, but I think we have the group of guys to accomplish that goal."

Berglund will be assisted by a trio of BCHL veterans. Returning Warriors Max French and Shawn Hochhausen (both local products) will be assistant captains, as will Richard Vanderhoek, who was acquired from the Surrey Eagles in the off-season.

The Warriors open the 2011-12 regular season this Friday night in Trail.
