For the Blues I know Landon Wilson is an alternate captain :)
I believe Rami Alanko is the captain and Mika Niskanen is the other alternate

Awesome! If anyone can get info on the alternates...

Is Ylonen still hurt? Is that why he's no captain of Espoo?

He lost half of the last season and that's why he isn't captain anymore.

He is again hurt and it is unsure whether he can or can't play again. :(

During the Korpisalo injury time Peltonen is the captain. Tuominen and Nielikäinen are wearing the A's. So all-Pasi captaincy trio...

LOL, that's pretty funny

Thanks for the info on Ylönen

For Jokerit, Martikainen and Varis are the A's? The website says Pakaslahti and Jantunen, but it doesn't seem like it gets updated very often, so I don't doubt that you are correct.

Interesting that Jokerit goes with a trio of which none played with the team last season.

That's kinda the life story of Jokerit ;)
