The ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies have announced that Trey Bradley, Matthew Boucher and Miles Gendron will serve as team captains for the 2021-22 season.
Bradley enters his third full season as a professional and will wear the ‘C’ for Utah. Last season, he led the Grizzlies with 37 assists and was second the team with 47 points. He played his best hockey when it mattered most as he scored 19 points (two goals, 17 assists) and had a plus-12 rating in the last 16 games, leading the Grizz to the playoffs.
During his NCAA career, Bradley played at Division I Colorado College.
Boucher and Gendron have been named assistant captains and will wear the ‘A’ this season. Boucher led the Grizzlies with 25 goals and 52 points last season and won the 2020-21 Rookie of the Year award.
Gendron posted seven goals and eight assists in 46 games last season. His best performance came on February 6, 2021 at Kansas City where he scored a pair of goals in a 3-2 Utah win.
Bradley will be the first Grizzlies player to wear the ‘C’ since Taylor Richart wore it in the 2019-20 season. Current Grizzlies assistant coach Teigan Zahn was team captain for the 2018-19 campaign.
The home opener for the Grizzlies 2021-22 season is on Saturday, October 23 at 7:10 p.m. from the Maverik Center while the season opener is on October 22 at Idaho, also at 7:10 p.m.
