Alex Truscott Named 2017-18 Bulls Team Captain

BLAINE, MN – Heart and Soul, character, gritty and determined…

Those are some of the words that best describe the Amarillo Bulls Team Captains over the past seven years and that might sum up Alex Truscott who has been chosen by the Coaching Staff to wear the letter ‘C’ for the 2017-18 season.

In one season, Truscott has quickly become a fan favorite with his tireless work ethic and never quit style on the ice. Bulls Head Coach Rocky Russo is excited about the decision they made.

“He has consistently showed leadership skills and willingness to sacrifice for the team,” said Russo. “His work ethic and commitment to excellence will be infectious in our locker room.”

Truscott, who missed the Bulls home opener on Saturday due to an upper body injury, will make his debut as Captain tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon when the team faces the Wilkes-Bare/Scranton Knights at 1:15 pm.

The Draper Utah native joins Derek Hills (2010-11), Joe Kozlak and Matt Johnson (2011-12), John Rey (2012-13), Mike Davis (2013-14), Ben Jentsch (2014-15), Joey DiBenedetto (2015-16) and Matt Nehls (2016-17) as players who have worn the letter ‘C’ with the Bulls during the team’s previous seven seasons.
