Reports Indicate Bryce Salvador To Be Named Captain


There are numerous reports floating around that Bryce Salvador will be named the next captain of the New Jersey Devils.

Though many believed it would be Ilya Kovalchuk or even Patrik Elias who would be wearing the “C”, instead, it will be the 36-year-old defenseman.

Salvador is widely known to be well respected in the locker room and is coming off perhaps his best season as a Devil. He even showed some scoring touch in the playoffs to go along with his always-solid defensive play.

Many people think that it should have been Kovalchuk chosen, as he will be here for more than a decade.

What do you think? Is Pete DeBoer making the right move?
