No lack of leadership on Sound Tigers
“It’s was tough on the team, but I didn’t look at myself as the captain, Kevin Colley was the captain of this team and still is to this day,” Rourke said. “You can’t replace what he brings. Losing him was tough, but guys have stepped up into new roles allowing more ice time for other players to step into.”
About a month after Colley’s retirement, Baseggio received a phone call from him talking about his and the team’s future.
“He told me he would not be offended if I were to give the team captaincy to someone else,” Baseggio said. “I never thought about it until Kevin said that, and I don’t know if it is something I am going to do yet or not. Part of me still thinks that Kevin Colley is still the captain with the inspiration he gave to this team before the accident and now after.”
