The Vancouver Canucks have announced their leadership group for the 2019-20 season, but are waiting to name a captain.
Head coach Travis Green said the captain won’t be announced until the team’s home opener against the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 9.

“We are going to name a captain this season,” Green said. “It’s a special moment, something our fans should be able to witness firsthand. We’ll make the announcement Wednesday at our home opener.”
The Canucks haven’t had a captain since Henrik Sedin retired at the end of the 2017-18 season.
