Dream big and work hard, and your dreams will come true: Hometown boy Logan DeNoble is proof of that, having been named captain of the Peterborough Petes.
Logan (No. 28) follows in the footsteps of former captains that were also local to Peterborough, including Doug Gibson (1972-73), Dallas Eakins (1987-88), Brent Tully (1993-94), Steve Webb (1994-95) and Kevin Bolibruck (1996-97).

“Growing up in Peterborough, it was a dream to play for the Petes,” says DeNoble. “If you’d have told when I was drafted in 2014 that one day I’d be named captain, I probably would have laughed it off.”
“It was an accomplishment to make the team, and to now have the honour of captaining my hometown club is incredible. I am going to make the most of this opportunity and will work hard to lead us to another successful season.”

“When it comes time to selecting captains, you look at players who bring character, their work ethic, their attitudes and how they carry themselves,” says Head Coach Jody Hull. “We felt that Logan was the player who, based on his journey to this point, best personifies what it means to be a Peterborough Pete.”
What would make this season even more special for Logan and the rest of the maroon and white? A run to the Memorial Cup of course. Bring it.
