Senior defenseman Andrew MacWilliam will captain UND this season.
The alternate captains will be senior forwards Corban Knight, Danny Kristo and Carter Rowney.
None of the choices are surprising. MacWilliam and Knight were alternate captains last season. Kristo decided against signing with the Montreal Canadiens in the offseason to return to UND and Rowney has been one of UND’s most reliable two-way players since he arrived as a freshman.
This is not MacWilliam’s first time wearing a ‘C.’
His coach in Camrose gave him a ‘C’ during the middle of his last season in juniors. MacWilliam got it in November and the team immediately went on a long winning streak.
“We’ve got a great corps of leaders and that makes it so much easier,” MacWilliam said. “Everyone in our senior class could be wearing a letter. They are all great leaders and they all know how to get the job done.”
