Sun Devils name Pasichnuk, Busch co-captains for ’18-19 season
Arizona State junior defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk and junior forward Tyler Busch will serve as the team’s co-captains for the 2018-19 season.
Sophomore forward Dominic Garcia and senior forward Anthony Croston will be the alternate captains.
“It is no surprise these four men will be leading our program this season,” said ASU head coach Greg Powers. “All were recruited due to the leadership they demonstrated for previous teams, and all have displayed those same qualities here.”
Back in July, Powers announced the promotion of Pasichnuk (pictured) to captain with more to come prior to the season. The junior defenseman wore an ‘A’ for the back half of the 2017-18 season.
Before attending ASU, Busch wore the ‘C’ for the Spruce Grove Saints in the AJHL. When Busch signed his NLI in 2016, Powers called him “the ultimate team guy” and the “ultimate captain”.
This will be Croston’s third season sporting the ‘A’ on his chest after earning it early on during his sophomore campaign. He is also a Phoenix native and a Jr. Coyotes alum.
Similar to Croston, Garcia earns the ‘A’ entering his second season and will be the youngest leader wearing a letter on his jersey.
“Dom wore the ‘C’ for his team in Aston and is the ultimate leader and culture builder,” said Powers back when Garcia signed his NLI. “The energy he plays with and brings to the room every day is contagious and he will have a major impact on helping us build our program.”
