Not a huge surprise. Last year’s best player and well respected player in the locker room, Mikko Koivu, was named permanent captain by coach Josh Richards today.
Well deserved, I’d say, even though the beginning of this season has not been that great this year.
Even so Koivu is clearly the leader of this team and has been a steady and important part of the team for some time now.
I think the players probably had already named him the captain in the locker room anyway but I’m glad to here Richards thinks the same as me.
