Former Vipers captain Crowell to captain Seawolves
Monday, April 23, 2012 - Submitted by BCHL Media
In his final BCHL season, Chris Crowell captained the Vernon Vipers to their first of three straight Fred Page Cup wins and the first of back-to-back RBC Cup national titles.
Now going into his senior year at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, the Williams Lake native will wear the "C" again and hope it spurs the Seawolves to similar success.
Crowell, 6-foot-3, 205-pound forward, is known mostly as a physical presence and a defensively responsible player for the Seawolves as he has just a goal and an assist in his NCAA career. He is a two-time Western Collegiate Hockey Association Scholar-Athlete and All-Academic Team honouree.
In 213 career BCHL games, Crowell scored 33 goals and 57 assists while totaling 596 penalty minutes.
