The San Diego Seals are proud to announce team captains for the 2022-23 season, led by veteran defenseman Brodie Merrill who returns for his fourth season with the ‘C’ on his chest. Defenseman Cam Holding and forward Wesley Berg will again serve as assistant captains for the upcoming campaign.
“Our captains embody and represent the essence of what it means to be a San Diego Seal on and off the field,” said General Manager and Head Coach Patrick Merrill. “We’re fortunate to have a locker room full of guys who team-first, selfless and ultra-competitive. We believe a successful culture starts with surrounding yourself with good people. We couldn’t be more proud to have Brodie, Cam and Wesley leading our team this season.”
Brodie Merrill was named the first captain in Seals history before the team’s inaugural season. He’s appeared in 45 games for San Diego, recording 36 points, 352 loose balls and 43 caused turnovers. On February 22, 2020, Merrill scooped up his 2,518th career loose ball to become the NLL’s all-time leader in the category. The future Hall of Famer is a league-record three-time NLL Transition Player of the Year recipient (2009, 2010, 2017) and a nine-time NLL All-Pro selection.
“I’m honored to continue to lead this team,” said Merrill of his captainship. “I hope to build on what we accomplished and continue to move towards our goal of bringing a championship to San Diego. I’ll do my best to lead by example and support my teammates.”
Named an assistant captain ahead of the team’s inaugural season, Holding has appeared in 46 games in team history. He led the Seals in loose balls from 2018-2021 seasons, and added 13 goals. The defenseman was selected by San Diego in the 2018 NLL Expansion Draft.
Berg led the team in points and ranked second in goals scored in his first two season in San Diego. Before being traded to the Seals, he played three seasons with the Calgary Roughnecks where he was an NLL Rookie of the Year finalist. The righty was drafted fourth overall in the 2015 NLL Entry Draft. Berg played college lacrosse at University of Denver and was part of the 2015 National Championship squad.
