Paul Thompson Named Wolves Captain


November 19, 2017

Prior to hopping on the bus and traveling to Rockford for the first Illinois Lottery Cup contest of the season, the Chicago Wolves coaching staff named Paul Thompson the 13th captain in franchise history.

“During a hard time, you get to see who steps up and Paul Thompson is the guy stepping up on the ice and off the ice,” said Wolves head coach Rocky Thompson. “He has great support (from the staff and the team), so he is the guy we chose and we have a tremendous amount of confidence in him.”

The Wolves are in Rockford looking to snap a losing streak that has stretched five games dating back to Nov. 8.

During those five contests, Thompson had just a goal and an assist, but the 28-year-old was all over the ice: taking abuse in front of the net to create chances and going into the corners to battle for pucks. He answers the call to keep his team in the game.

Thompson is the seventh forward to don the “C” for the Wolves. He also joined a group that includes Nolan Baumgartner (2011-12), Darren Haydar (2007-08; 2012-13), Jason Krog (2009-11), Derek MacKenzie (2005-06) and Steve Maltais (1994-96, 1997-2005).
