Brandon leads by example; as a second year peewee AAA player he was named captain of his team and also lead his team in points as a defenceman. That season he won top defenceman for the AAA peewee league in Newfoundland and was also named to Team NL Under 14 roster.
Two seasons later as a second year bantam player he once again captained his team leading his AAA Icepak team in points to once again earn top Defenceman in the province.

“First time I saw Brandon play was at the Meltdown in Montreal in May. Great composure, Brandon will give us great stability in our back end with his puck moving skills and offensive upside.” -Midget Varsity Head Coach Olivier Filion.
