Red Wings announce alternative captains

The Detroit Red Wings skate on the ice before facing the L.A. Kings.

Henrick Zetterberg announced that his skates would not make the ice and instead be hung up, as he will no longer be playing in the NHL.

Zetterberg announced his retirement Sept. 14, leaving the captain’s C available. However, the Red Wings have decided to name two more alternative captains.

The two new skaters with the embroider A will be veteran Frans Nielsen and young star Dylan Larkin.

They join Justin Abdelkader and Niklas Kronwall who both have worn an A for the past few seasons.

The league has a rule that allows one captain and two alternate captains or no captain and three alternatives. To fit this rule, the Wings will have Nielsen wear the A on away games and Larkin will wear it at home.
