Ross captaincy era off to a nice start
2022-01-13

The Wolves went "D" to "D" this week.

With the departure of Tampa Bay Lightning blueline prospect Jack Thompson, traded on Monday from the Sudbury Wolves to the Soo Greyhounds, the local juniors were left without a captain.

Not for long as the team remained within the defense corps for their next choice, tapping overager Liam Ross for the honour. With exactly 220 OHL games under his belt since being selected in the fourth round of the 2017 OHL draft, Ross will close out his final half year of junior hockey proudly donning the "C".

Over the course of his time in Sudbury, the Markham native has registered 17 goals and 47 assists. Ethan Larmand will remain as assistant captain, with alternate captain designations rotating through a handful of other players, until permanent designations are announced, according to the team media release.

Ross would get his captaincy off on the right foot, scoring a second period short-handed goal, the game-winner it turns out as the Wolves stopped the Peterborough Petes 3-1 to kick off a three in three road trip Thursday night.

The win, which also featured goals from rookie Kocha Delic and newcomer Jacob Holmes, snapped an eight game losing skid for coach Craig Duncanson and company, drawing the Wolves to within just a single point of Peterborough, the team that currently holds down the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
