Okanagan Hockey Academy Edmonton announced Thursday that forward Josh Baker has been named the programs inaugural captain.
Baker, 15, is an Edmonton, AB product and a Swift Current Broncos draft pick.
"He's shown awesome leadership skills both by example and by attitude towards his teammates," said OHA Edmonton Head Coach and General Manager, Randall Weber.
OHA Edmonton is coming off a weekend split with Edge School in exhibition action, and will now get set for their Canadian Sport School Hockey League debuts as they travel to Banff for a Prep Division Showcase starting Friday.
OHA helped shape the person I am today in an abundance of ways. The training regime and on-ice practice went a long way in helping me achieve my set goals in hockey, while making the jump to the next level attainable. Ultimately, it was the lessons I learned off the ice that have shaped me the most. From learning to balance school with hockey, to building character and unity with my team. All in all, OHA was the best decision to not only further my hockey career, but also to further myself as a person."
