WATCH: Penguins 1st Round Pick New Captain of Juniors Team



Pittsburgh Penguins, Owen Pickering

Owen Pickering impressed the Pittsburgh Penguins on and off the ice. He impressed Pittsburgh media, PHN included, with his well-spoken and accessible demeanor. The Penguins made him their 2022 first-round choice, 21st overall.

On Friday, the Swift Current Broncos named the 18-year-old, still-growing 6-foot-4 defenseman their new captain.

The team did so with a ceremonial video on Twitter. Former Swift Current captain Glenn Gawdin, now with the Calgary Flames organization, also helped with the new announcement.

A cool moment for Owen Pickering, a young player who seems destined for the Penguins’ lineup in the future.
