The Lethbridge Hurricanes have their man naming hard-nosed Defenceman Mike Reddington as Captain for this season. Reddington becomes the 19th player in history to wear the "C" following in the footsteps of 2009 Captain and graduating player Carter Bancks.   Head Coach and GM Rich Preston says Reddington has the three attributes that make up captain -- he competes to win each night, he leads by example on and off the ice, and he stands up for his teammates. The Hurricanes acquired Reddington in a trade with Spokane in 2008 - 2009.  Last season he had 26 points and a team leading 168 penalty minutes in 67 games.
