The University of Michigan announced this week that junior forward Carl Hagelin and sophomore forward Luke Glendening have been chosen as alternate captains for the rest of the 2009-10 season.
Hagelin (pictured) and Glendening will assist senior defenseman Chris Summers, who was tabbed as the U-M captain prior to the season's start.
"Our players had a vote after the first 10 games to choose alternate captains and it was a clear that the consensus choices were Carl Hagelin and Luke Glendening," Michigan head coach Red Berenson said.
Hagelin is off to a good start in his junior campaign, having earned four goals and four assists in the first 10 games of the season to rank second on the team in points (8). In addition to his regular forward shifts, Hagelin sees time on both the power-play and penalty-kill units. As a sophomore in 2008-09, the Swedish import had a breakout season with 13 goals and 18 points for 31 points, which ranked third on the team. He posted a +19 plus/minus rating and was U-M's representative on the 2008-09 CCHA Scholar-Athlete Team. He also earned Academic All-Big Ten distinction.
A former walk-on, Glendening is the first sophomore to wear a letter since 1990-91, when David Harlock was a sophomore co-captain. Through 10 games this season, Glendening has one goal and two assists. He skated in 35 of 41 games as a freshman, accumulating six goals, including three game-winners, and four assists to go with a +11 rating and earned U-M's Alton D. Simms Award as the team's most improved player.
