Fredonia team captains for the 2016-17 seasons are senior Hunter Long (Lebanon, Tenn./Lebanon) and junior Jamie Young (Russell, Ohio/Gilmour Academy), it was announced by Head Coach Jeff Meredith.

Long, a forward, will serve as team captain after spending the past two seasons as assistant captain. He has appeared in 63 games over his first three seasons and has 11 goals and 25 assists. Young, a defenseman, will be the assistant captain. He has played in 48 games -- 24 in each of his first two seasons -- and has two goals and five assists.

"Hunter is a throwback kind of person with old school values and his approach to life," Meredith said about Long. "These things are evident in his leadership style. A naturally hard worker, Hunter brings grit and recklessness to his game, leaving it all out there and only for one reason ... the good of his team. I am excited to go into next season with Hunter as our captain."

"Jamie Young has shown," Meredith continued, "a natural knack for being a leader ever since he landed on campus as a freshman. At the end of his first year, he really grew into that role and has expanded it since then. A no-nonsense competitor, Jamie will do a great job as a leader of our hockey team."
