NBCRightNow.com - Mitch Topping will serve as the Tri-City Americans' team captain for the upcoming 2013-14 season.

Topping, who just concluded his fourth full WHL season and second with the Americans, is coming off a career-best 2012-13 campaign, recording new highs in goals (13), assists (26) and points (39).  In 267 career games, split between Chilliwack and Tri-City, the Red Deer, Alberta-native has registered 26 goals and 89 points.
