The Windsor Spitfires have named third-year defenceman Patrick Sanvido as their new captain.

“Patrick is a drafted pro, and a guy that has come a long way both on and off the ice,” Boughner said. “It was pretty unanimous decision. Right from the beginning, coming into training camp, we had our eye on Sandy as a guy that might be our captain. After 15 games, the way he’s handled himself, has been impressive. We’re proud to have him as our captain moving forward.”

Sanvido, 18, was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the 7th Round, 195th overall, at the 2014 NHL Draft in Philadelphia back in June. Sanvido has played in 138 regular season and four playoff games, all as a Windsor Spitfire.
