CEDAR RAPIDS- The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders would like to announce they have named forwards Jordan Timmons and Graham Slaggert as alternate captains for the remainder of the 2017-2018 season.
Timmons, from Bridgeville, PA, is in his 2nd season with the RoughRiders. Acquired from the Muskegon Lumberjacks last season, he has skated in 41 games as a RoughRider, scoring 11 goals and eight assists to date. He is committed to UCONN.
Slaggert, from South Bend, IN, is in his 1st season with the RoughRiders. He had been with the U.S. National Development program the previous two seasons in the USHL. In 29 games he has seven goals and 13 assists. He is committed to the University of Notre Dame.
"Jordan Timmons and Graham Slaggert have both made positive contributions on and off the ice all season long," said RoughRiders Head Coach and General Manager Mark Carlson. "They have put the team first, put in extra work before and after practice and have made great contributions to the Cedar Rapids community. It simply made sense to appoint them alternate captains."
Timmons and Slaggert join captain Marc McLaughlin and alternate captain Liam Walsh.
