The Phoenix Knights have their leadership in place for the 2017-18 season. The Knights announced Thursday that forward Michael Caravella will become the team’s captain for the upcoming season. Caravella played with the Knights during the 2015-16 season. When Phoenix's newest captain was signed earlier in the offseason, Head Coach and GM Colten St. Clair mentioned the forward’s leadership qualities, both on and off the ice.
The team also announced their assistant captains for the upcoming season. Phoenix will have three players in that role, with all three being returning Knights from the 2015-16 season. Defenseman Chase Gillaspie, along with forwards Colton Seeman and Arunas Bermejo, will join Caravella in leadership roles this season.
Phoenix will open their season at home on Friday, September 29 at AZ Ice Gilbert when they face the Valencia Flyers. Puck drop is at 7pm, and for information about tickets, click here.
