Nill: Stars will name new captain prior to regular season

Stars GM Jim Nill said the team will have a new captain for the 2013-14 season, but there won’t be any decision until after training camp gets underway.

Nill said he wants new head coach Lindy Ruff  to get a sense of things before the call is made on who will wear the “C” for the Stars.

“I am going to sit down with Lindy when we get into training camp and we’ll make that call then,” Nill said. “I want Lindy to get a feel for the team a little bit first. It will happen sometime during training camp or the exhibition season.”

The Stars have been without a captain since late last season, when Brenden Morrow was dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

  1. I’m very impressed with the work Jim Nill has done in such a short time period

  2. It has to be Benn. Whitney and Robidas are reaching the end of their time in Dallas, There’s no point in giving one of them the C just to have to redistribute it in a year or two.
