OHIO Hockey named its captain and assistant captains for the 2018-19 season during the annual senior luncheon and award ceremony last week.

Senior forward Bryan Lubin and senior defenseman Grant Hazel were named assistant captains for next season while senior forward Cody Black was selected captain. 

"Our athletes do an excellent job here electing our leaders. Cody is a player that holds a lot of pride for OHIO Hockey and everyone knows of the effort he gives night in and night out," stated Head Coach Sean Hogan. “Grant is a hard-nosed player that takes pride in holding our team to a high standard, and Bryan has consistently demonstrated an ability to overcome adversity, becoming better each season. We will have a strong leadership core next year.”

Newly elected team captain Cody Black commented, “It’s an honor to be selected as captain of the prestigious OHIO Hockey program. I am excited to get back on the ice with my teammates and battle for the national championship trophy to create a memorable season that will last a lifetime.”
