Aiden Reilly named Captain

Hard work over the past four seasons has paid off for veteran forward Aiden Reilly, as he was recently named Team Captain for the Uxbridge Bruins’ 2018-19 PJHL season.
The Ajax native joined the Bruins prior to the 2014-15 campaign after spending a season in the GTHL with the Toronto Titans ‘AAA’ Midgets after graduating from the Ajax-Pickering Raiders.
“We had seen him early on, and liked his skill set and the way he attacked at both ends of the ice. We were confident that he could grow into a dynamic player at this level,” Bruins head coach Andrew Langlands recalled. “He worked for everything he’s got at this level, and we’re thrilled to be able to reward him for all of his dedication to the program with the ‘C’ this season.”
Early on in his Bruins career, Reilly used tenacity to endear himself to the team’s staff and dedicated supporters taking on a primarily defensive role and impressing in his rookie campaign with 3 goals and 7 assists over 34 games played while gradually increasing his ice time as the season wore on.
Taking on a larger role in his second season with the team, Reilly saw his point totals more than double with 10 goals and 11 assists in 40 games played while routinely being matched up against the top offensive players for the opposition.
Reilly continued to progress into a leadership role in his third campaign, finishing the 2016-17 season with 12 goals and 15 assists in 41 games played. Reilly came into his own in Uxbridge’s surprising run in the playoffs playing a key role in the Bruins upset win in the quarterfinals against North Kawartha and their valiant effort against Lakefield in the semifinals with 9 points in 12 postseason games played.
The 2017-18 season saw Reilly take his place among the Orr Division’s premier two-way forwards, routinely bringing crowds at The Bear Den to its feet with thunderous hits and highlight reel goals. He would lead Uxbridge in scoring with a team-high 25 goals and 19 assists in 38 games played.
“This is a tremendous honour for me to be able to serve as captain this season. This program has had a lot of great players over the years and it’s an unbelievable thrill to be able to know that I’m able to lead this team and its fans as the captain,” Reilly said. “The fans in Uxbridge have treated me so well over the past five years, and hopefully we can pay that back this season with an exciting and successful year.”
