In a move most fans knew was coming, it was announced today that defenseman Scott Langdon is the new San Francisco Bulls Captain.

I give my full support and congratulations and am very happy for him and the team. Langdon is a great player and leader. Scott has never once hesitated to step up and represent the team during a game. He’s fought any opponent when necessary, given the hardest, nastiest hits if that was what it took and went to the Sin Bin proudly if it could motivate a win. At +12 his defense record is at the top of the Bulls. According to Coach Curcio, he’s shown leadership ability since the beginning of the season. I have no doubt he’ll be a very good leader for the team at a time when they really need one.
Because Langdon is leaving his Alternate Captain status, Dean Ouellet has been chosen as the newest Alternate Captain. This is excellent and Bulls fans should be pleased. He has superb leadership qualities that will shine through.
As I stated in Saturday’s blog, the auctions and raffles of the one-time only teal jerseys benefited charity. Two charities were involved. The money will be divided up between the San Francisco USA Hockey Association and the Oakland Bears Hockey Club.
Also, have you seen the amazing new BLACK jerseys that will be available next season? Season ticket holders will get one and I’m hearing they will be the team’s new Third Line jerseys. This is exciting indeed! So, I can only assume they will also be available for purchase next season. Summer will be hard to get through.
Bulls have two games in Boise with the Idaho Steelheads beginning Tuesday through Wednesday nights. As always, listen in at www.knbr.com
Note: The website says Tuesday night’s game starts at 7:10pm, but it is one hour ahead so I would tune in at 6:00pm just in case it starts an hour earlier. You wouldn’t want to miss anything.
