I can't find the exact date the Oilers named Jason Smith as captain, but memory seems to me that they didn't name him until after the 2001-2002 preseason had ended but before the regular season. I went to a couple of preseason games that year and remember that Smyth wore the C for one of them, which had me thinking that he'd be named the permanent captain.
