With the regular season set to launch shortly, the New Jersey Devils are expected to name their new captain in the next few days. Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger suggests a veteran defenseman could be considered the frontrunner for the honor.
"I have a sense of who will be the captain," Patrik Elias said. "I would think Sal."
As in Bryce Salvador.
"He’s very well-liked. Probably a couple of guys here don’t like me. You can put that in," Elias -- a former Devils captain -- added while laughing.
