NAVAN GRADS NAME GABRIEL CRETE TEAM CAPTAIN

NAVAN, ON – The Navan Grads of the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) are proud to announce that veteran forward Gabriel Crete has been named Team Captain.

The 2022-2023 season will mark Crete’s fourth season with the Grads; the Mercyhurst University NCAA Division I commit registered 18 goals, 30 assists and 48 points in 54 games last season; Crete who plays a complete 200-foot game, will be relied on to play in all situations for the Grads.

Head Coach and General Manager Marty Abrams said, “Having Gabe lead our group for the 22-23 season is something that is a natural step in his development. A local graduate of our U18 program, he has followed the process, was selected in the OHL draft and is a Division 1 NCAA commit. Gabe has earned the right to wear the C by not taking any shortcuts, working hard on and off the ice while remaining loyal to our program and his teammates. As a Staff we couldn't ask for anymore and are proud to have him be our Captain this season.”

Crete said, “I’m extremely honoured and proud to receive the C! I can’t wait to get started with this group and accomplish big things this year!”
