PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown rising junior Devin Timberlake (Port Alberni, BC) has been named the Captain of the men's ice hockey team for the 2008-2009 season, announced by head coach Roger Grillo. Timberlake, who is the 104th Captain in the history of Brown hockey, is just the seventh junior to earn the honor and will be the first junior captain since Bradley Kreick '91 in 1989-90.
Timberlake has played in all 63 games since arriving at Brown in the fall of 2006 and has been a valuable part of the Bears' front line since day one. One of the hardest workers on the team, Timberlake centered Brown's top line last season, was a part of the Bears' top penalty-killing unit, and also saw valuable minutes on the power-play. He took the majority of Brown's face-offs last season, taking a total of 797, 305 more than the next person on the team, and winning 413 of them to lead Brown with a .518 face-off win percentage. The fifth-leading scorer on the team last year with 17 points (7g, 10a), Timberlake has 28 career points (10g, 18a). Timberlake is also a two-time selection to the ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team.
