Congratulations to junior forward Pat Mullane, selected by a vote of his peers to serve as captain of the 2012-13 Boston College hockey team. Mullane played in all 44 games last season and finished the year with career-highs in goals (10), assists (29) and points (39). He has 96 points - 26 goals and 70 assists - in 125 career games.
Mullane recorded three assists in this year's Frozen Four, including two in BC's 6-1 victory over Minnesota in the Frozen Four National Semifinals. He also scored the game-winner in the Northeast Regional Final, a 4-0 victory over Minnesota-Duluth.
Defenseman Patrick Wey and forward Steven Whitney will serve as assistant captains.
Wey played in just 32 games this season, after missing 12 games from October 28 - December 9 with a severed tendon. He played in each of the team's final 26 games (21-4-1), tallying seven points - two goals and five assists - and finishing with a plus-minus rating of +17. Wey is a prospect of the Washington Capitals.
Whitney played in all 44 games for the National Champs, recording career highs in goals (16), assists (23) and points (39). Steven's brother, Joe Whitney, served as team captain during the 2010-11 season.
The junior class of Mullane, Wey, Whitney, Patch Alber, Brooks Dyroff and Parker Milner boast an absurd 20-1 record in the postseason, including three straight Beanpot Championships, three straight Hockey East Tournament titles and two National Championships.
Congratulations to all three players. Go Eagles!
