University of Manitoba BisonsWINNIPEG — The Manitoba Bisons have a foursome of hockey captains at their disposal to open up the 80th Canada West season.

Forward Jordan DePape and defenceman Luke Paulsen will be co-captains while defencemen Brock Sutherland and Lee Christensen will be the alternate captains for Manitoba this season.

“All four players serve in the captain position this season are excellent leaders,” said head coach Mike Sirant, who is entering his 20th season at the helm. “They are leaders who lead by example on the ice, in the classroom and in the community.”

The Herd hosts the Regina Cougars October 9-10 at Wayne Fleming Arena on the U of M’s Fort Garry campus. Puck drop is Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m.
