Pominville Named Captain

The Sabres announced today that Jason Pominville is the new captain. Paul Gaustad, Drew Stafford, Thomas Vanek, and Derek Roy will all be assistants.

Pominville is a solid option and should serve well as the team’s captain. He was the Sabres “iron man”, playing 336 consecutive games without missing any time.

That all ended when he was checked into the boards from behind by Nicklas Hjalmarsson, suffering a concussion. He still managed to finish the season with 18 goals and 30 points in 57 games.

Pominville is signed through the next three seasons and is the 3rd highest player on the Sabres roster, behind Miller and Vanek.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
