Nick Suzuki became the 31st captain of the Montreal Canadiens, succeeding Shea Weber, who is “unofficially” retired, as his contract is now with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Suzuki has the ability to play this role with rigor and seriousness. Especially since he is well respected in the dressing room by the young players as well as by veterans such as Joel Edmundson or Brendan Gallagher.

The announcement was made Monday morning by head coach Martin St-Louis as the Sainte-Flanelle held its annual golf tournament to kick off the 2022-23 campaign.

The number 14, who is only 23 years old, becomes the youngest captain in the history of the franchise, which is not an added pressure according to him.

True to form, Suz said it was an honour and a privilege to wear this letter of nobility with the Montreal Canadiens.

He is excited and ready to take on such a challenge with the Montreal Canadiens, and will be supported by two outstanding veterans in Gallagher and Edmundson.
