Oil Caps to Honour Franchise Milestone

The Virden Oil Capitals are proud to announce that prior to Tomorrow’s game vs Swan Valley they will celebrate a monumental milestone by one of the franchise’s most recognizable names.

Devan Schram, who was the franchise’s first signed recruit, played in his 200th game with the club on November 28th vs the Dauphin Kings.

The milestone makes him the first Oil Cap to reach the 200 game plateau. Schram became the Oil Caps franchise leader in games played on November 7th vs OCN when he surpassed Jordan Greig (189 Games) for 1st place on the list.

Along with his longevity and ability to stay healthy and in the lineup, the Winnipeg native has made his mark as a true fan favourite.

With his 9 goals and 25 points this season, Schram becomes the Oil Caps All-Time Leading Scorer with 140 points.

He has also moved into 3rd place on the Caps All-Time Goals list, two goals behind Ben Williams for 2nd and 16 behind Corey Haverstick for 1st place.  

“Night in and Night out, Devan has been one of our hardest working players” said GM & Head Coach Troy Leslie.

“On behalf of the whole organization I think its safe to say that Devan has set the example of what a good Oil Capital should be.”

The Oil Capitals would like to thank Devan for his contributions on and off the ice over the last 4 seasons!

Members of the club’s ownership and front office will make a special presentation to Devan prior to puck drop tomorrow night vs Swan Valley.

Congratulations Devan!
