Canucks head coach: No rush to name a captain

CAPTION: Vancouver Canucks head coach Travis Green says becoming the captain of an NHL team is a “huge responsibility.” The team is currently without a captain after Henrik Sedin retired at the end of last season.

(Sept.

13, 2018) 1.

SOUNDBITE: Jim Benning, Vancouver Canucks general manager 2.

SOUNDBITE: Travis Green, Vancouver Canucks head coach 3.

SOUNDBITE: Bo Horvat, Vancouver Canucks forward PLACELINE: Vancouver CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: The Vancouver Canucks could be without a captain this season and they may not be the only Canadian team to forgo a designated leader.

The Canucks have said there's no rush to replace Henrik Sedin, who wore the ``C'' before retiring with his twin brother, Daniel Sedin, at the end of last season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens are also currently without captains.

The role comes with a lot of responsibility, especially in a Canadian market, said Vancouver coach Travis Green.

``We had a great one here for a long time.

We've had some great captains in Vancouver,'' he said.

``I don't think there has to be a rush to name a captain.

I think if you do, I think you're making a mistake.

You gotta make sure whoever's named the next captain is the right choice and is ready for the responsibility.'' Coaches and management will consider their options at training camp this weekend, but the role could go unfilled this year, said GM Jim Benning.

``We're going to see the group and see who steps up.

We don't necessarily need to name a captain this year, if that's what's best for our team,'' he said.
