Panthers, Devils Should Name Captains Quickly

Panthers coach Kevin Dineen plans to name his choice this week.

For the third time in the Florida Panthers’ 18th season existence, the franchise did not have a captain in 2011-12. Bryan McCabe served in that role until he was traded on Feb. 26, 2011.

Devils coach Pete DeBoer indicated that he will probably make an announcement before the team’s season opener on Saturday, but he wouldn’t tip his hand.

“We’ve had some internal discussions,” DeBoer said, “but we haven’t named anyone yet.”
