In some relatively surprising news, the NY Rangers will not have a captain this season. Instead, they will go with four alternates. The alternates are the expected: Mika Zibanejad, Chris Kreider, Artemi Panarin, and Jacob Trouba.
There was a lot of speculation that one of Zibanejad or Kreider would get the C, with the others getting A’s. By not naming a captain, the Rangers kick the can down the road a little bit. It is a little surprising, but these four are clearly the leaders in the locker room.
