A former UND player is looking to captain a team to both the Stanley Cup and the Calder Cup this spring.
As everyone knows, captain Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks begin the Stanley Cup finals tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers. Toews is looking to become the first former WCHA player to captain a team to a Stanley Cup.
In the AHL playoffs, Landon Wilson is the captain of the Texas Stars, who are playing against the Hershey Bears in the Calder Cup finals. That series begins Thursday.
Texas has won back-to-back series in seven games, knocking off the Chicago Wolves and the Hamilton Bulldogs.
Recently, there was a good Q&A in the Dubuque Telegraph Herald with Wilson. Read that here.
