TORONTO - Andrew Agozzino of the Niagara IceDogs has been named the Ontario Hockey League's top captain.
Agozzino won the Mickey Renard Captain's Trophy on Wednesday after leading Niagara to the OHL final.
The 21-year-old from Kleinburg, Ont., tied for fifth in league scoring with a career-high 88 points (40 goals, 48 assists) during the regular season.
Under Agozzino, the IceDogs won their first Central Division title and had a franchise-best overall record at 47-18-3.
As a rookie, Agozzino competed against former Windsor Spitfires captain Renaud, who died of a heart condition in 2008.
"Mickey was very well respected and a great captain and to receive this in his memory is something I'm very proud of," said Agozzino.
Agozzino is also credited with leading the OHL in fundraising in the first year of a Canadian Hockey League-initiative in support of men's health and prostate cancer awareness.
