Canadiens to name captain before end of camp; Galchenyuk to play center
General manager Marc Bergevin told reporters Thursday that the club will name their captain prior to the end of training camp.
"Some guys just got in last night," Bergevin said. "I think it's important to talk to everybody before (making a decision)."
The GM said he met with his young forward in June, and that Galchenyuk is looking forward to the opportunity.
Galchenyuk scored 20 goals in 80 games in 2014-15, his third season with the Canadiens. He was drafted third overall by Montreal in 2012.
