TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning named forward Martin St. Louis the ninth captain in franchise history, head coach Jon Cooper announced tonight at an invitation-only event at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg.  The three alternate captains will be defenseman Matt Carle as well as forwards Steven Stamkos and Nate Thompson.

“Our discussions regarding a new captain began in June and we’re very excited to make this announcement tonight,” Cooper said.  “Marty embodies everything a captain should be. The captaincy is one of the highest honors in hockey and Marty is well-deserving. We have a great group of leaders on this team and I’m sure Marty will receive plenty of support moving forward.”
