Sharks coach DeBoer has chosen captain, won't announce until Monday or Tuesday
San Jose Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer knows who his captain will be.
After the Sharks' 5-1 preseason loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night, DeBoer said he has chosen the Sharks' next captain but won't make the announcement until Monday or Tuesday, according to Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News.
Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic have all worn the "A" as assistant captains in the preseason.
San Jose went without a captain last season after McLellan and general manager Doug Wilson stripped the "C" from Thornton, who held the responsibility from 2010 to 2014.
