The Golden Gopher women's hockey program has named seniors Sydney Baldwin and Cara Piazza as co-captains for the 2017-2018 season.

"I am very excited to announce that Sydney Baldwin and Cara Piazza will be our captains for the 2017-18 season," head coach Brad Frost said in the announcement.  "I'm confident in their abilities to lead the team both on and off the ice.  I'm not surprised that their teammates selected them as captains.  They both are great players and great students, and they are tremendous representatives of our program.  We are looking forward to another great year of Gopher women's hockey."

The 2017-2018 season will be the first as captain for both Baldwin and Piazza.  The duo was part of back-to-back national championship teams their freshmen and sophomore years at the University of Minnesota (2014-2015 & 2015-2016), and they have helped the program advance to three-straight NCAA Frozen Fours during their careers.
