Coach D.J. Smith expects to have three alternates when the 2020-21 season begins, as the team isn't in a hurry to name a new captain.
"It’s not going to happen this season," Smith said Thursday. "I can’t say not, but as of right now we’re not planning on it. We’re going to transition some of the younger guys into a leadership role. I think everyone knows Chabot and Tkachuk are the guys pushing from the bottom. I don’t see that happening this year. I see more of a group mentality where you’re going to have to have people with leadership up front and leadership on the back end. Part of being a young team is maybe the coach has to be a leader maybe for one more year." Thomas Chabot and Brady Tkachuk are top candidates to be the next captain of the Ottawa Senators. Chabot has been anchoring the team from the back end, while Tkachuk led the team in scoring last year. Sep 20 1:02 pm (EST)
