Tychonick, Ward named assistant captains for 2017-18

Penticton, BC: The Penticton Vees Junior ‘A’ hockey club is pleased to announce the naming of Taylor Ward and Jonny Tychonick as assistant captains for the 2017-18 season. The two join Owen Sillinger and Grant Cruikshank who will serve as co captains this season, and Chris Klack who is also an assistant captain.

“I have been pleased by the way all our returning players have impressed our culture on our new group,” Vees head coach and general manager Fred Harbinson said. “Our leadership is solid with the addition of Taylor who I’ve seen mature during his time with the Vees. With regards to Jonny, he has trusted the process and his actions over the offseason have shown he deserves to wear a letter.”

Ward, a Kelowna native, enters his third season as a member of the Vees having played 116 regular season games and scoring 33 points. He played a big role in the Vees Fred Page Cup championship last season, scoring four goals and adding five assists in 21 games. He is committed to attend the University of Nebraska-Omaha in the fall of 2018.

Tychonick, from Calgary, begins his second season patrolling the Vees blue line after scoring three times and tallying 20 assists in 48 games. He was also named to Team Canada West for the 2017 World Junior ‘A’ Challenge in Bonnyville, Alberta where he scored once with one assist in four games. He is slated to attend the University of North Dakota next fall.
