Boston College Hockey Announces 2013-14 Captains

via bceagles.com

Boston College hockey forward Patrick Brown has been elected captain for the 2013-14 season by a vote of his peers. Arnold and MacLeod will serve as assistants.

Congrats to Boston College hockey forward Patrick Brown, elected captain of the team for the 2013-14 season. Brown played in all 38 games in 2012-13, recording 11 points - five goals and six assists -- and winning 251-of-473 faceoffs as a junior.

Forward Bill Arnold and defenseman Isaac MacLeod will serve as assistant captains. Arnold (Needham, Mass.) is a fourth-round draft pick of the Calgary Flames, while MacLeod (Nelson, British Columbia) is a fifth-round selection of the San Jose Sharks. Both were drafted in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

All three were elected by a vote of their peers.

With Arnold and MacLeod named captains for next season, both are all but certain to stay on for their senior seasons. The Boston College hockey early departure watch shifts now to a trio of players whose rights are owned by NHL clubs -- sophomore forward Johnny Gaudreau (Calgary), junior forward Kevin Hayes (Chicago) and freshman defenseman Mike Matheson (Florida). (Freshman defenseman Colin Sullivan is also a seventh-round draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens but isn't considered to be a flight risk.

Gaudreau may be the biggest flight risk out of the three, especially if he comes home with this year's Hobey Baker Award (the Hat Trick will be announced later today). The Eagles sophomore may be feeling the pressure from Calgary, currently second to last in the Western Conference standings and in the midst of a complete roster fire sale. But the appeal of playing with his younger brother Matty Gaudreau may be too good to pass up.

The Gaudreaus won't know until June whether Matt will join Johnny on next year's team or whether he'll push back to 2014-15. If it comes down to whether or not Johnny sticks around another year, I'm sure York and the coaching staff can find a scholarship for Matt, even with an incoming class currently loaded at the forward position.
