Philadelphia, PA – The Philadelphia Revolution officially announced the team’s captain and alternate captains for the 2019-20 campaign.
Head coach Jon Rogger named forward Andrew Bench as team captain. Bench, 20, is in his second season with the Revolution Junior A program. The Yardley, PA native skated in 34 games last season with the team while recording 16 points (6g-10a).
In 10 games this season, Bench has averaged a point-per-game after recording five goals and chipping in five helpers.
“Bench is a player that all the guys respect and look up to,” said Roggers. "He plays the game the right way and leads by example both on and off the ice. He is one of those players that when he speaks, everyone listens.”
Additionally, the organization named Mark Tosti, Brayden Patricia and Tyler Rossi as alternate captains.
Tosti, 20, enters his fourth season with the organization and third with the Junior A program. The 5-foot-8 forward has recorded 32 points (14g-18a) in 27 games played this season. The Newton, PA native also committed to Stevenson University (NCAA Division III) for the fall of 2020-21.
The Revolution’s leading point-scorer in Patricia is skating in his first season with the organization. The 19-year-old has found the back of the net 18 times while collecting 15 assists in 33 games played.
Tyler Rossi, 19, represents the team’s blueline with the letter “A” stitched to his sweater. The 2019-20 campaign marks the Amherst, NY native’s second season with the Junior A program. Rossi has recorded 15 points (3g-12a) in 22 games played, thus far.
The timing of the announcement seemed to have sparked Philadelphia. The Revolution are riding a three-game winning streak since all four captains were appointed in December.
