Defenseman Mike Weber Becomes Fourth Captain in Iowa History

DES MOINES, IA  – The Iowa Wild announced on Friday the team has selected its Captains for the 2016-17 season, starting with defenseman Mike Weber as the fourth Captain in team history.

Weber dons the “C” on his jersey for the first time in his 10-year pro career. He previously wore an ‘A” in the NHL with the Buffalo Sabres, as well as with the Rochester Americans and the Portland Pirates of the AHL. The Pittsburgh native is a veteran of 351 NHL games between Buffalo and Washington.

Joining Weber with an “A” in his jersey is veteran forward Jeff Hoggan, who captained the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins for the previous four seasons, including a Calder Cup Championship in 2013. Defenseman Max Fortunus and veteran center Pat Cannone will also sport an “A” on their jerseys, but the two will alternate between home and away. Fortunus, who served as Iowa’s Captain in 2015-16 and the Captain of the 2014 Calder Cup winning Texas Stars, will wear and “A” for all home games. Cannone, who captained the AHLs’ Chicago Wolves in 2015-16, will serve as an Alternate Captain on the road.

Iowa continues the home stand with a two-game visit from San Antonio that starts Friday at 7 PM. Fans may purchase $2 Beers, compliments of 100.3 The Bus. It’s also Teddy Bear Toss Night, where fans are permitted to throw a new or gently used stuffed animal on the ice for charity. The Teddy Bear Toss benefits the Mercy Pediatric unit.
