“Nick embodies everything that a coach wants a captain to be for his team. He works hard on and off the ice and leads both by being vocal and by example. Nick is the definition of a “pro” and he brings an incredible level of professionalism to the team and organization every single day. Nick deserves this honor and I am fully confident he will do an exceptional job leading our team into the postseason.”

Newly named Captain Nick Gullo had this to say about the honor “To be named captain of the Mammoth is an incredible honor. To lead a team as special as we have into battle every game is a privilege. I am super excited to see what our team can do as we make the final push towards playoffs!”
