Hogg sticks with Cowichan Capitals

After a nine-game audition as an affiliate player, Ryan Hogg has secured himself a full-time spot on the Cowichan Valley Capitals’ 22-man roster.

The Duncan native, who doesn’t turn 16 until Dec. 3, hasn’t recorded his first B.C. Hockey League point yet, but he has made a positive impression on the Caps’ coaching staff.

"Ryan is a young player with tremendous potential," said Cowichan head coach and general manager Bob Beatty. "He is a good skater with good puck skills and a high hockey IQ. Ryan is very coachable and highly motivated with a work ethic and will to succeed consistent with the identity we need to create. We are confident he will be an exceptional player for the Caps for a very long time."

Hogg played his minor hockey in the Cowichan Valley until last season, when he spent his first year of midget with the Burnaby Winter Club program.

In addition to his nine games with the Caps, Hogg has also appeared in 10 contests with the junior B Kerry Park Islanders, scoring twice and recording five assists.
