Aside from the capability/qualities that a Hockey Team Captain should have, it is my understanding that for Les Habs, the captain is selected by the current players.

For most NHL teams, I am of the understanding that most team captains are picked by team management [coach & GM], with little or no input from the players unless the coach or GM does a survey?

I would be interested to find out if the Habs team captain is elected every year by the players or once it is initially done; the person remains the captain until he 1) requests to be relieved of his captaincy 2) retires or 3) is traded?

Anyone know?
