Vanek, Ott Co-Captains In Buffalo

Vanek_2013The Buffalo Sabres have gone in a unique direction with their leadership group, naming Thomas Vanek and Steve Ott co-captains for the 2013-14 season.

According to head coach Ron Rolston, Vanek will serve as captain for home games and Ott will don the C for road contests. In addition, defenseman Christian Ehrhoff has been named as an alternate captain.

The decision to name Vanek and Ott co-captains isnt entirely surprising Vanek is the teams most talented and leading scorer, and Ott has quickly become a fan favorite.
