Sabres Alert

McCabe, Johansson get A’s

Sabres name their alternate captains

The Sabres named their alternate captains on Wednesday, giving Jake McCabe and Marcus Johansson the A’s on their jerseys. 

It’s a little surprising to see a new player to the team get a letter right off the bat. This comes after the Sabres had Kyle Okposo and Jason Pominville as alternates last season. 



Johansson becomes the second Swedish player to wear a letter for Buffalo. The only other one was Henrik Tallinder during the 2013-14 season.

“Just looking at practice – it feels like guys are ready. I mean, there’s high intensity, guys look hungry. – Johansson

Here’s a complete list of all the Sabres captains and alternates:
