The Victoria Royals have crowned a new captain ahead of the 2021 season start-up.

Tarun Fizer will be the eighth captain in team history.

The Royals’ general manager and head coach said Fizer is already an outstanding leader on and off the of the ice.

“Tarun is a driven competitor who sets the standard for dedication, leadership and behaviour for our organization,” Dan Price said in a statement. “He has earned this opportunity and we know that he is ready to take on this added responsibility.”

Fizer, a career-Royal, is entering his fourth season with the team and is coming off of his best year. The 2001-born winger had 19 goals and 34 assists in 57 games during last year’s campaign — scoring almost 20 points more than his sophomore year with the club.

Fizer will be wearing the “C” when the Royals return to Western Hockey League play for the first time in over a year on March 26. The Royals are playing in a 24-game, pandemic-condensed season against the WHL’s other four B.C. teams. The B.C. division bubble is based out of two hub cities located in Kelowna and Kamloops.
