Dryden Ice Dogs of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League have named 20-year old forward Brady Frattinger as their team captain for the 2022-2023 season.
Hailing from the small town of Elkorn, Manitoba, Frattinger can well be described as a heart and soul player who competes much bigger than his 5-foot-10, 165 pound frame.
To be sure, the fearless forward was a standout for Dryden in 2021-2022. He posted 23 goals, 20 assists, 43 points in 45 regular season games for the Ice Dogs and then came through with five goals, five assists, 10 points in eight playoff contests. His 10 playoff points were the second most for Dryden. Frattinger also racked up 121 minutes in penalties along the way as an absolute front line warrior.
Not only should Frattinger once again be a top forward for Dryden in ’22-23 but one of the very best at his position in the entire SIJHL.
As Frattinger will wear the ‘C’ on his jersey for the Ice Dogs, Benny Hackl, Jackson Jacques and Max Rath have been named alternate captains.
