The Cowichan Capitals are excited to announce the commitment of 2001 born forward Shawn Milord for the 2020/2021 season. Milord is 19 years old and hails from St-Cesaire, Quebec. He’s spent the past two seasons with the Sorel-Tracy Rebelles of the QCHL, the same team as another incoming Capital Vincent Bernier. Last season Milord finished 3rd on the team in scoring with 8 goals and 36 points in 32 games played.
“I am very happy to join such a good organization like the Capitals along with my best friend (Bernier). I can’t wait to come out to Cowichan and get to know the coaching staff and my teammates” said Milord.
In 68 games over two seasons in Sorel-Tracy, Milord finished with 67 points after finishing second on the team with 31 points in 2018/2019. In 2017, Milord was selected in the 11th round of the 2017 QMJHL by the St Johns Sea Dogs after posting 74 points in 51 games while playing high school hockey at Ecole Verbe-Divin. In 2016/2017 he finished with 44 points, 16 more than any other player on the team, a team which included former Capital Zach Brooks.
“‘Shawn is a gifted offensive player who we expect to play a role in our top six forwards and on the power play. He sees the ice incredibly well and will compliment our other offensive players. He will bring a lot to our lineup and give us a lot of strength down the middle” said Capitals Head Coach Geoff Grimwood.
