HELENA -- In his first three games for the Helena Capital Bruins, Brayden Koch has made a splash, leading the Helena Capital Bruins in both points scored and assists.
The Bruins came into this year with four solidified starters in their lineup, while the fifth spot was up grabs, and Koch plans on making it difficult for others to take it from him.
Bruins head coach Guy Almquist said Koch's influence on the season isn't that surprising because of the work he's put in across the last year.
"Brayden Koch has stepped up considerably, leading us in points and assists as a sophomore. We knew his growth was considerable this summer, we knew he had a lot of talent coming in," said Almquist. "He worked so hard at it. What's been nice to see is how the team chemistry has been very good with him in there. And so we've got a lot of weapons on the perimeter, and they're meshing well."
The Helena Capital boys will round out their non-conference schedule when they host the Great Falls CMR Rustlers on Jan. 4 at 3:30 p.m.
