Lodnia New Captain
 
https://niagaraicedogs.net/article/i...iagara-icedogs

Niagara IceDogs Head Coach Billy Burke has announced that overage forward Ivan Lodnia has been named captain of the Niagara IceDogs. Lodnia becomes the 13th captain in team history.

“Ivan brings a professional attitude and work ethic to the rink every day in everything he does” said Head Coach Burke. “He loves this team. He leads by example on the ice, in the gym and in the community.”

In this midst of his fifth and final Ontario Hockey League season, Lodnia has put the developing IceDogs on his back. The team’s leading scorer, Lodnia has 47 points (19 goals, 28 assists) in 26 games. His creative goal scoring abilities and high level skating saw him play a key role for the IceDogs. He has three games winning goals, once in a shoot-out and twice in overtime this season.

Drafted in the first round (20th overall) in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection to Erie, Lodnia helped the Otters capture the 2017 OHL Championship. In the 2017 NHL Draft, Lodnia was selected in the third round (85th overall) by the Minnesota Wild. The Wild signed him to an Entry Level contract in December 2017. He was acquired by the IceDogs in the summer of 2018, and lead the team in scoring in the 2019 playoffs, with 14 points (4 goals, 10 assists) in 11 games. He was returned to the IceDogs from the Minnesota Wild in October 2019.

“This organization has been there for me from the start.” said Lodnia. “I’m really excited and honoured to be the captain of this hard working, and talented young team.”

“I’m very proud and excited to have Ivan lead our young team as we enter into this new era of Niagara IceDogs hockey.” said Burke.

Do we really need a captain at this stage of the game ??

Yes these young guys need direction. I just hope next year they pick one that will be around for awhile. Only 1 time have we had a captain longer then 1 year or a half year.

Someone has to go down with the ship, or at very least - put your foot on a barrel and swig some rum.

Him being named captain goes to show you how irrelevant it really is in the grand scheme of things ... he’s going to be the captain of the good ship icedog and hopefully sail ya to the 4th overall (or better) draft pick land by the end of the season ...

I give it a big who cares and we pretty
Much all figured it would be him ...
