New York Rangers To Name New Captain

According to Kevin Weekes, the New York Rangers are set to name Jacob Trouba as their next captain.

Trouba will be the first captain the Rangers have had since they traded Ryan McDonagh to the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2017-18 season. That is a long time to be without a captain, and McDonagh has since found a new home with the Nashville Predators.

Yet, the Rangers wanted to take a patient approach when finding their next captain. Trouba's name had come up as a possibility since last offseason, as he has been praised heavily for his leadership. Now, the Michigan native is officially set to be the Blueshirts' 28th captain in their history.
