The New York Rangers will have at least one change among their leadership group this season as it was announced that Mats Zuccarello has been named an alternate captain.

Zuccarello will join team captain Ryan McDonagh and alternate captains Marc Staal and Rick Nash in filling out the Blueshirts’ leadership group.

The Rangers lost two members of that group this past summer by trading Derek Stepan and buying out Dan Girardi.

    with all the bullshit in the world this week it was nice to wake up and read something that puts a smile on your face.
    Bravo Matts.

    Ha.
    Mats may be from Norway, but he is a man of the world. Of Italian descent, he went to Sweeden as a late teen to eventually become the MVP of the SHL. Later to the KHL and Olympics. Then Hartford before eventually forcing Torts to make him a regular, even though he sent him back down again. AV was less stubborn and he bloomed into a all-star winger and heart and soul of the team.
    In practice, he is the team's most energized and vocal skater. He's a phenomenal and unselfish teammate. He was already the key to this team's leadership. Glad it is official.
    The solution to having too many A's... Staal eventually sits, as our 7th D. And not for Holden.

    What do you mean? Its just the same 3 every night. 1 C and 2 A's.
    Edit - Never mind I forgot he makes 4. Hmm. Can you dress 3 A's in one game or just 2?

    Nope. He'll rotate with Nash is my guess. Home/away.
    One captain, two alternates per game.

    I think you can dress three A's if you don't have a C.
