Head Coach Brian McGlynn released the following information regarding selection of team leaders for the 2016-2017 season.
"The coaching staff, after careful deliberation, has decided to name the following players as Captains for the upcoming 2016-17 varsity hockey season. It is our hope that these players receive this honor with the respect and responsibility that comes with the positions and hope that the Vianney Hockey Club and Board support these players in the upcoming season.
The Team Captains for 2016-17 will be Seniors...Reid Zimmermann (#19 Forward), Mickey Zahoran (#16 Forward), Sean Griffin (#22 Defenseman).
It is our belief that we have selected individuals that have dedicated themselves to the team and have the necessary qualities to help the team to a successful year and future. These three student athletes have demonstrated that they possess the successful components associated with student athletes. They have shown the coaching staff they are true “Griffins” and I believe they are the necessary building blocks in the base of our “pyramid of success” moving forward."
Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Captains. There will be two more Assistant Captains named by Coach McGlynn after Summer On and Off Ice Workouts.
