The Vancouver Canucks aren't sewing a "C" on anyone's jersey just yet, but they will in due time.
"We are going to name a captain this season," Canucks head coach Travis Green said. "It's a special moment. Something our fans should be able to witness firsthand. We'll make the announcement Wednesday at our home opener."
Horvat was expected to be given the "C" entering the 2019-20 campaign.
Vancouver hasn't had a captain since Henrik Sedin served in the role from 2010 to 2018.
