Sabres Name Captain

Meet the new captain

In case the jersey is throwing you off, that is newly acquired defenseman Craig Rivet. Rivet was selected by Ruff and the players to serve as the permanent captain for the Sabres. Pominville, Numminen, Spacek, and Hecht will serve as alternates with two on the road and two at home.

Obviously, no one could see this coming. Maybe as an alternate but not as captain. But this is mainly a players decision and it shows the confidence they have in their new teammate.
