Senior defenseman Ryan Ruikka will serve as assistant captain and junior defenseman Garret Noonan was named a Hockey East All-Star as a sophomore. They will join a talented group of incoming freshmen, including five newcomers who were selected in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.Legendary coach Jack Parker enters his 40th season as head coach with an overall record of 876-456-113 for a .645 winning percentage. Parker, who has made a record 24 appearances in the NCAA tournament as a head coach, will look to lead the Terriers to their eighth Hockey East title.
