It happened a month ago:
Some news just announced by the Blue Jackets: they have named three assistant captains to start the 2012-13 NHL season.
Derek Dorsett, Jack Johnson and RJ Umberger are the three players to wear "A"s when the team takes the ice tomorrow night against the Nashville Predators. Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards has said throughout Training Camp presented by OhioHealth that the team has no timetable on naming a full-time captain; rather, he prefers to let leadership rise from the dressing room and let the next captain be the perfect fit.
Johnson, 26, came to Columbus via trade from the Los Angeles Kings last February and instantly made himself at home with the Blue Jackets. He fit like a glove both on the ice and in the locker room, and was immediately logging top-four minutes on the blue line for Richards.
He wore the "A" during his time in Los Angeles and was one of the team's young leaders
, and has scored at least 35 points in three consecutive seasons.
What the hell is up with that? Sure, he may have been a locker room leader, but he never wore an 'A' for LA, did he?
"I think part of his game is he’s over aggressive at times, which I like. We’ll tame that. I’d rather tame a lion than paint stripes on the kitty cat." -
