St. Cloud, MN – The St. Cloud Norsemen of the North American Hockey League announced Ben Helgeson as the first captain in Norsemen history.

Helgeson, a Roseau, MN native, earns the honor amid his third season in junior hockey and first in the NAHL.

“It is an incredibly humbling honor to be named captain of this organization,” said Helgeson.
