Leblanc Named as Screaming Eagles Captain

Cape Breton, Screaming Eagles
 Sydney – Screaming Eagles general manager and head coach Marc-André Dumont announced today that 20-year-old Defensemen Olivier LeBlanc has been named team captain.  He becomes the 23rd captain in Screaming Eagles franchise history. 

Leblanc was previously captain of the Saint John Sea Dogs before being traded to the Screaming Eagles in January of 2015. A fifth year player in the QMJHL, Leblanc was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 7th round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and recently attended the Arizona Coyotes training camp before being reassigned to the Screaming Eagles. 

“With his experience, Olivier is the best guy to lead this group of competitors on the road to success,” said Dumont. “His passion for the game and his work ethic set the standard for his teammates. He is what we want a true Screaming Eagle to be.”

During the 2015-2016 season LeBlanc had 5 goals and 31 assist in 59 games for the eagles while maintaining a plus minus of +30. 

Alternate captains will be named at a later date.
