Alpena Flyers of the U.S. Premier Hockey League have chosen their on-ice leaders for the 2015-2016 season, which begins with a road game on Friday in Kalkaska.
Mark Mulligan has been named captain of the northern Michigan-based Flyers with returnees Shane Dawson, Nic Baranyai and goalie Hunter Meyers serving as assistants.
Despite being a newcomer to the team, Mulligan was the unanimous choice of the Alpena coaching staff to wear the C.
“Mark’s efforts at practice and in the weight room make him an exemplary player,” said Flyers head coach Erik Peterson. “He goes above and beyond everything he does.”
