When talking about the future captain of Montreal Canadathe name of Nick Suzuki it always comes back. He’s normal, he’s young, he’s talented, he’s the team’s #1 midfielder and he’s involved in the community. He seems like the perfect candidate.
Suzuki is calm and quiet. He’s not a big talker, but he leads by example, just like that Jonathan Toews in Chicago for 15 years.
Some may say that the position belongs to Brendan Gallagher. After bleeding more than once, it’s hard to argue with the fact that he deserves a C on his jersey for a long time.
However, another option comes to mind and that is a player who has not yet worn the team’s jersey once.
Drafted in 2020, the 16th position, the young man, now 20 years old, already has a complete resume in terms of leadership.
At 18, he was named captain of his youth team, the Prince Albert Raiders. That same year, he was named the captain of Team Canada for the youth championship and last year after being traded to the Edmonton Oil Kings, he led his team to great honor, collecting the title of the best player of the series. All this in 2 years.
He is a born leader. He’s a guy who shows up every night and goes to war for his teammates. He is seen as the best candidate for the captain position with Canada. Of course, he will first have to establish himself as a player, but there is no reason to believe that he will not succeed in the NHL.
It would be a good idea to name such a person Gallagher as a captain, when do all the youngsters arrive in the team?
So it will be easier to focus on which one is more worthy, to take a chance later.
Another option would be to give him the job Suzukistarting this year.
