Chapman named Tennyson's first captain

Speedy forward Zach Chapman has been named Tennyson Chevrolet’s team captain for the 2012-13 season.

Chapman, who stands just 5-foot-4, was one of the big stories of the 2011-2012 Great Lakes Junior Hockey League season with the Motor City Chiefs.

"We are very pleased and honored to name Zach as our captain,” said Tennyson coach-GM Dan Vasquez. “Zach's work ethic, commitment to his team and dedication to the game was one of the most impressive things I have seen in my 30-plus years as a coach. I know that Zach will help make that type of dedication part of our everyday habits. Chapman started last season as a player that was supposed to not break the taxi squad and ended up being a player that we used in every situation and was invaluable to our everyday play.

"We have spent a lot of time over the summer talking about him taking this role and we think he will be a great captain.”
