Edinburgh Capitals are excited to announce that Rhys Stenhouse and Cameron Gallagher will be part of the club’s 2023-24 SNL campaign roster.
Rhys and Cameron trained with the team last season whilst also playing for Murrayfield Juniors U19s. They were both rewarded for their effort and hard work, icing in several games throughout for the Capitals in the 2022-23 SNL season.
Forward Cammy played in 17 games picking up 4 assists. D-man Rhys, iced in 10 games and grabbed a goal and an assist.
With their junior careers now behind them they will continue to work hard and take any chances that come their way. Head Coach Steven Lynch knows the importance of having depth in the roster and commented, “Both players have now finished their junior careers with MJIHC and they will be full members of our squad for 2023-24.
What we look for with them both now is to embrace the opportunity. They have to challenge some of the more senior players for regular ice time, which they will be given the chance to do as long as they both keep showing the right attitude, commitment, dedication, and willingness to improve that they showed last season.
We welcome both players back and look forward to seeing how they progress throughout the season.”
Rhys is delighted to be back once again with the team and said, “I’m excited to be back with the Caps this upcoming season and I’m looking to work hard and take my chances when given to me. I’ve finished my last season with Murrayfield U19s and I’m now looking forward to my first season of senior hockey with the Caps.
I love playing hockey at Murrayfield, the fans are amazing, keep the noise up and be loud and proud next season and hopefully, we can make it a winning year.”
Cammy who recently represented Team GB at the U23 World Ball Hockey Championships in the Czech Republic said, “I am so excited to be back playing for the Caps in front of our incredible fans. Having just left the Murrayfield Junior team, I am prepared to work and train hard in my first season of senior hockey. It’s an honour to represent Edinburgh and Murrayfield where I have loved playing over the years.”
These two youngsters are another vital part of the team and with only a few slots left to fill, the excitement is beginning to build for the new season.
LET’S GO CAPITALS!
