By @MichaelCaples –

Lake Superior State has announced its captains for the 2019-2020 WCHA season, and one of two players wearing the ‘C’ for the Lakers hails from the Great Lakes State.

Livonia native Max Humitz will be one of two co-captains for the Lakers this season; he is joined by Stillwater, Minn., native Collin Saccoman.

Toronto native Brendan McKay and Mannheim, Germany native Lukas Kaelble will serve as the assistant captains this fall.

Humitz, a Muskegon Lumberjacks alum during his time in the USHL, recorded 33 points in 36 games for LSSU last season as a junior. His goals (16), assists (17), points (33), plus/minus (+14) and game-winning goals (4) were all personal bests.

Over his first three seasons, Humitz has racked up 76 points in 108 career NCAA games.

LSSU opens its 2019-2020 NCAA season by hosting Merrimack on Oct. 5-6.
