The four were voted as team captains by returning players.
“I am very excited to announce our Captains for the upcoming 2020-21 season,” head coach Jim Scanlan in a news release. “We are very fortunate to have eight very experienced seniors who are all tremendous leaders. Our culture has always been driven by our senior group and all of these players have been great role models and mentors for their teammates throughout their careers here at Bemidji State. The four who have been selected by their teammates to wear a letter on their jersey are great representatives of our team, our university and the community of Bemidji. They are not just leaders on the ice, but they are all outstanding students as well.”
