Rider boss Craig Mohr has just announced that Alex Cheveldave will be the team Captain this season.
Cheveldave contacted Rider HC and GM Craig Mohr last week and said that he wanted to play in Fernie again this season. My guess is Mohr probably jumped right out of his phone to shake his hand and offer him the the Captains "C when he got that call.
Last season Alex started out on the wing but played the last half on the blueline and was named and the Team Playoff MVP at the end of the year. As a 20 year old Cheveldave brings lots of experience that includes a run with the Jr A Yorkton Terriers of the SJHL.
Cheveldave also plays with a pretty good "edge" and makes the enemy keep their heads up. Coach Mohr plans to play him on the blueline, his normal position, this year... but if anything happens up front, he is an excellent option. Chevy will be the Riders 25th "C".
WELCOME BACK ALEX ! ... getting any ideas #14
