ANCHORAGE - Head bench boss Dave Shyiak announced Monday that senior defenseman Scott Warner has been named an assistant captain for the remainder of the Alaska Anchorage hockey season.

"In speaking with the staff and our upper classmen, we though Scott would be a great addition to balance out our leadership group in relation to our defensive core," said Shyiak, "Scott is well respected in the locker room, he is a hard worker and one of our best students."

Warner, a local of Anchorage, will join junior Matt Bailey as an assistant captain, while senior Chris Crowell dresses as this season's captain.

The Seawolves return to action this weekend in Bemidji, Minn., when they take on the Beavers, Nov. 23-24.
