Hatcher Named Flyer's Captain

With the uncertainty of Keith Primeau’s health, the Flyers have named defenseman Derian Hatcher the 14th captain in franchise history. Hatcher, who was signed as a free agent by the club this summer, will wear the “C” until Primeau returns from his concussion.

In my opinion I believe this was the best way too go. Hatcher was the captain of the 1998 Stanley Cup Champ Dallas Stars, so he’ll be an ideal fit to lead this team hopefully to the promise land. With thier current losing streak the Flyers need someone to step up in the locker room and address the team current state.
