The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that defenseman Chris Pronger has been named the 18th captain in team history.

In addition, Danny Briere and Kimmo Timonen will wear the “A” as the alternate captains for the 2011-12 season.

“With Chris’ experience and presence, we felt that he was the perfect player to take over as captain of the Philadelphia Flyers," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

“Having Kimmo and Danny, both former captains in the NHL, serving as alternates, really gives us a strong, dedicated leadership group.”

“All three of these players know what it takes to win and are excellent role models both on and off the ice.”

This is an outrage. Why Jody Shelley is not captain is beyond me.

Shouldn't it be Schenn? He is the next next Clarke after all...

Hard to argue against having Pronger with the C, but personally I would probably have given it to Timonen.

Pronger may now be the heart of this team, but Shelley is the pancreas...nobody can take that from him. NOBODY.

Briere should have been an alternate all last year instead of Carter. They made the right choices
