Bailey, Cameron named hockey captains
ANCHORAGE – Alaska Anchorage head hockey coach Matt Thomas announced Friday that seniors Matt Bailey and Brett Cameron will lead the Seawolves this season as captains, while classmates Jordan Kwas and Quinn Sproule will dress as assistant captains.
In addition to the co-captains and two assistants, goaltenders Rob Gunderson and Chris Kamal will round out the senior leadership group. This will be Bailey’s second season in a leadership role, as he served as assistant captain a year ago.
"Our senior class will represent our leadership group for the 2013-14 season,” said Thomas. “These six student-athletes are very focused and determined to provide the guidance necessary for the team to succeed this season and in the future."
"There is a lot of pride and passion in Seawolf hockey from this group and we are excited to have them lead our program into the new WCHA and create a lasting impression on our student-athletes,” said Thomas.
The Seawolves will start the season with the annual Kendall Hockey Classic on Oct. 11-12 at the Sullivan Arena. Prior to the tournament – which features UAA, Alaska Fairbanks, Air Force and Quinnipiac – the Seawolves will host a Green & Gold scrimmage on Sept. 21 and an exhibition game vs. British Columbia on Oct. 4 at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.
