Simpson named captain

Senior defenseman Dillon Simpson — the 20-year-old who coach Dave Hakstol says has “always been a little bit ahead in terms of his maturity and perspective” — will be UND’s captain this season.

The alternate captains will be Stephane Pattyn and Michael Parks.

Simpson seemed like a no-brainer for captain. He should be one of UND’s top players on the ice and he’s been one of the best guys in the classroom since arriving on campus as a 17-year-old.

One thought on “Simpson named captain

  1. Great pick…. Simmer definitely deserves it. Kid is a class act. Little surprised not to see Mark Mac with an A over Parks, but I don’t necessarily disagree with it. Good group of captains, IMO.
