Seth Davis

The chain of command has shifted with the Cowichan Valley Midget Tier 1 Capitals hockey team, leaving Seth Davis at the top.

Grade 12 Cowichan Secondary School student Davis, a strong-two way defenceman, is the captain of the team this season.

“It’s just a different step because there’s a lot of young guys on the team,’’ he said.

“I’m trying to run their warm-ups and everything. It’s a lot harder, I guess.’’

Coach Aaron Spotts likes how Davis has assumed the team’s leadership role.

“He’s been good offensively and defensively,’’ said Spotts.

“He’s really picked up his game from last year. You can tell he worked hard in the summer and got himself better. Now he’s having success at this level and he’s then obviously wanting to move on to Kerry Park or the next level at Junior B.’’

Davis has already been called up to the Islanders for a few Junior B games.

“It’s tough,’’ he said of the transition. “I’m just going to keep working.’’

Davis is concentrating on specific parts of his game to prepare for whatever comes after midget.

“Just honestly fitness and keeping my strength up and working on my shot, too,’’ he said.
