Capitals have a new voice in the rafters of The Big Stick.

The Cowichan Capitals are excited to announce that Justis Doucet has become the new play-by-play broadcaster for the team, with the first radio and online broadcasts slated for the Capitals season and home opener on September 9th with the Nanaimo Clippers in town.

Doucet graduated the British Columbia Institute of Technology in May of 2017 with a degree in broadcast journalism. While at school he broadcasted high school basketball provincials, a handful of Pacific Junior Hockey League games, and spent two months as a broadcast intern with the Western Hockey League’s Victoria Royals. Prior to attending school, he was the play-by-play voice for the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s Kerry Park Islanders for two seasons.

“I could not be more excited to be joining the Capitals, ever since I was hired I have been counting down the days until opening night” said Doucet.

All fifty-eight Cowichan Capitals regular season games can be heard on 89.7 Juice FM, along with internet broadcasts on HockeyTV.com
