St. Cloud State University men’s hockey coach Brett Larson has announced Seamus Donohue of North Oaks will serve as a team alternate captain for the Huskies in 2020-21.

“St. Cloud State hockey has been blessed with a tradition of outstanding captains and this year's group of captains is no exception,” SCSU head coach Brett Larson said. “Seamus has earned the respect of our team and will be one of the leaders on the ice and in the locker room for us this season.”

Donohue is a 6-0, 190-pound defenseman from North Oaks and a graduate of St. Thomas Academy. He played three seasons of NCAA DI hockey at Michigan Tech before transferring to SCSU this season for his senior campaign. He is currently working toward his master's degree in sports management at SCSU. An alternate team captain at MTU in 2019-20, Donohue netted seven goals and 51 assists in 117 games played during his three seasons at Michigan Tech.  He received All-Academic honors at MTU and played junior hockey with Wichita Falls (NAHL) and Penticton (BCHL).

SCSU received votes in the recently released 2020-21 USCHO Division I pre-season poll. The Huskies are slated to begin the new season beginning on Dec. 1 with a series of games played in Omaha, Neb. as part of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference pod. After Jan. 1, SCSU is slated to return to a schedule of home and away games against NCHC teams. Check for updates on the complete 2020-21 SCSU men's hockey schedule as they become available.
