The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that defenseman Chris Pronger has been named the 18th captain in team history.
In addition, Danny Briere and Kimmo Timonen will wear the “A” as the alternate captains for the 2011-12 season.
The following is a statement from Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren:
“With Chris’ experience and presence, we felt that he was the perfect player to take over as captain of the Philadelphia Flyers.”
“Having Kimmo and Danny, both former captains in the NHL, serving as alternates, really gives us a strong, dedicated leadership group.”
“All three of these players know what it takes to win and are excellent role models both on and off the ice.”
