Penticton Vees defenceman Derik Johnson has been chosen as Denver Manderson’s successor as captain. The Vees made the announcement on Thursday as Johnson will return for one more season before joining the University of Minnesota-Duluth for the 2011-2012 season. Johnson was selected because of his leadership on and off the ice and his commitment to the game. Logan Johnston will be an alternate captain again next season with another assistant to be named later. On the Vees blog, it has been reported that Joseph Laleggia is returning to the Vees for another season. Check the Western News for more on Johnson next week.
