I knew he'd be the Captain over O'Reilly (can't go wrong either way) but very surprised that it happened with Hejduk still around. Oh well, glad it's finally settled and it's a great choice.

That is awesome. Pretty funny, considering his age, but not funny considering what he does on the ice. Might be a little early, but there was no doubt he was the leader of this team moving forward.

Really hope RoR is wearing an A this season.

The guy has captain material written all over him. I'm extremely optimistic with this but still concerned. I just hope this doesn't hamper his growth as being too much at such a young age.

My guess is they planned to give it to him or Radar when Duke retired but if what they are saying is true and Duke stepped down willingly then they just decided to jump the gun and go ahead with it instead of giving it to someone else for a year or two as a placeholder.

Release says Hejduk and Stastny will wear the 'A's.

I still think that eventually RoR and EJ are future assistants as well.

Not a **** up in the slightest, he'd have made a great captain as well, but for completely different reasons.

Too soon? I dont know.. Even if he is a foreigner, I think he can handle being youngst in NHL history.

He was practically born with a C on his chest.

I dont like it when you name your youngster player captain just cause he is your future star or best player bla bla..

But in this case, I really think that he is the most suitable leader. Despite his age.

I doubt Sacco, or any NHL coach for that matter, decides to make a 19 year-old the youngest captain in NHL history without discussing it with management first.

Congrats Landy!

Can't say I'm all that surprised.

Aren't EJ and Landeskog really close? I can't see an issue there. Stastny doesn't strike me as a guy who want's the C and already said well deserved on twitter. If Duchene thinks he should have been the Captain then he really is the most immature player on the team. Only one I could see being down is O'Reilly, but he's such a team player that I can't see it being an issue.

Grats guys and Lando!

Love this pick, so jealous of Avs fan. The guy is the closest thing I've seen to Forsberg in so long. Love his game.

Avs players and ex Avs players are pretty funny. See Winnik's and Jones' tweets.

That's just one of the many things that make him a special player, hes been named captain at an early age at every level and excelled. I always thought O'Reilly put to much pressure on himself without the C, I could only imagine how much pressure he would put on himself with it.

Like another poster said, he was pretty much born with a C on his chest. I was wondering if they might do this in the case that he would be captain next year, because he falls in line with a young captain like Toews.

I think Crosby was kind of a "Star player" move but guys like Toews and Landeskog actually deserve to be among the youngest captains in NHL history.
