(Windsor, ON) – Head Coach Trevor Letowski has named veteran centre Aaron Luchuk the club’s new captain and gritty forward Luke Boka as his lone alternate.

Luchuk, 20, enters his fifth year with the Spitfires having played 206 regular season games entering the 2017-18 season. The Kingston, Ontario native was a key piece of our 2017 Memorial Cup title team, scoring the championship clinching goal.

Boka, 18, enters his third year with the Spitfires. The Plymouth, Michigan native has 126 regular season and 12 playoff games to his credit.

“Looch epitomizes what it is to be a Spitfire,” Letowski said. “He’s worked hard and improved every season he’s been here. As demonstrated in the Memorial Cup final, he’s a clutch performer. He’s the right person to lead our young group and to set an example of what it takes to succeed in this league; on the ice, in the room and in the community.”
