Max Pacioretty named 29th captain of Montreal Canadiens
According to the organization, the 26-year-old left-winger was chosen by the players.
Pacioretty addressed reporters in English, as well as a little French.
“Last year prepared me a lot for this. I think whether you have the ‘C’ on your sweater or not, you’re expected to lead this team and we expect everyone to lead the team,” Pacioretty told reporters last Thursday at the Habs’ annual golf tournament.
Pacioretty made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens in 2009 after being drafted in the first round, 22nd overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by Montreal.
