Braeden Bowman has been named captain of the Guelph Storm for the 2023-2024 season.

The 20-year-old overage winger, a Kitchener native, is the 32nd captain in franchise history. Assistant captains are Matt Poitras, Michael Buchinger and Brayden Hislop.

"I am very proud to be able to announce Braeden Bowman as our captain for the upcoming season," said coach Chad Wiseman in a news release. "Braeden's commitment, work ethic, and attitude on and off the ice sets the standard of what it is to be a Guelph Storm hockey player."

Bowman is currently in his fourth OHL season with the club where he has recorded 60 goals, and 49 assists, for 109 points in 116 games. He was originally drafted in the fifth round, 96th overall by the Guelph Storm in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection.

Bowman attended Vancouver Canucks training camp this fall as a free agent.

Guelph kicks off its 2023-24 season Friday at the Sleeman Centre against the Owen Sound Attack. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
