The New Jersey Devils have announced that defenseman Bryce Salvador will serve as captain for the 2012-13 season.
Salvador, 36, joined the Devils during the 2007-08 season in a trade from the St. Louis Blues. He's played parts of four seasons in New Jersey, missing the entire 2010-11 campaign with a concussion. He signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract this summer.
Zach Parise, who spent one season as captain of the Devils, signed with the Minnesota Wild in July.
Ilya Kovachuk and Patrik Elias will serve as alternate captains.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs
Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.
ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ... quote me on it

I thought Elias was a shoe in, that or Kovalchuk. I like to think I watch a lot of hockey, and I don't know who Salvador is beyond being a defenseman on New Jersy.
Didn't pay too much attention to the playoffs I take it? Salvador was easily NJ's best Dman.
I knew Elias wouldn't have wanted to be captain, and Kovy doesn't seem like the right fit since he sounds like he doesn't wanna play there. So I would have thought Zajac would have been captain after signing that deal.

Elias has been asked to be captain before, and rejected it. Plus, he's probably retiring soon, whereas Salvador just signed a 3-year extension.
