Lightning To Name New Captain Tonight

Stamkos_2013The Lightning will name a replacement captain for Vincent Lecavalier on Tuesday evening at a fan event in St. Petersburg, according to the Tampa Tribune.

The club will also name its alternate captains at the event. Currently, three players serve as alternates — Eric Brewer, Martin St. Louis and Steve Stamkos — and it’s believed the latter two are the leading candidates to wear the “C”.

What’s curious is that both Stamkos and St. Louis are saying (publicly, anyway) the other is the more deserving candidate.
