Westland native Brown an OHL captain

The Kingston Frontenacs have announced that they have named overage forward Tyler Brown team captain for the 2011-12 OHL season.

“I took the opportunity and allowed the kids to voice their opinion and mark down who they would like as captain and assistants,” said Kingston head coach Todd Gill. “I looked over their answers and agreed with their choices.”

Brown, a Westland native and former Plymouth Whaler, joined the Frontenacs at the trade deadline in January when he came over from the London Knights.

“Brown is a quiet leader,” added Gill. “He leads by example and doesn’t just speak to be heard. He speaks to be meaningful.”
