For the upcoming season Drew Akins, will captain the reigning Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoff champion University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs in 2009-10. He will be joined by fellow senior Jordan Fulton and junior defenseman Mike Montgomery as the assistant team captains for the upcoming season.
Last season was Drew's most productive scoring season so far. He had a total of 5 goals and 10 assists for a career 15 points last season. This season the 'Dogs will need him to continue to be a key player and provide leadership for the team.
Fulton is coming off a career high scoring season, after posting 17 points last year. He was fourth on the team is goals with 12. This season, hopefully the goal output continues with the loss of Macgregor Sharp from last season there could be a hole in the scoring.
Mike Montgomery will be a Junior for the 2009-2010 season. He switched to defense last year and he had a really solid season. He posted 10 points and a plus minus of a plus 10. I expect him to continue to improve on defense this season, which will be Helpful as Alex Stalock will no longer be between the pipes.
