Miletic Named Assistant Captain

January 17, 2018 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Niagara IceDogs News Release

The Niagara IceDogs are proud to announce they have named newly acquired overage forward Sam Miletic an Assistant Captain! After having been acquired in a deadline trade from London, Miletic has played in 3 games, collecting 7 points (4 goal, 3 assists). Prior to the trade, Miletic collected 54 points (16 goals, 38 assists) in 35 games.

When asked about how Sam has exhibited his leadership qualities, HC Burke had nothing but raving reviews. "We brought Sam here to be a big part of our stretch run. We knew what he could do on the ice, but his off ice habits have been most impressive. He carries himself like a professional and sets a great example for our younger players. Sam exhibits all the characteristics, both on and off the ice, of what we hope an IceDog can be. We are very excited for the rest of the season."

The 20 year old left winger signed an NHL Entry Level Contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins in September of 2017.

The entire Niagara IceDogs organization would like to congratulate Sam, and look forward to what's to come as the 2017/2018 season heads down the final stretch to the post season!
