REPORT: Chicago Player Wants The Captaincy Over Everybody Else

Published September 13, 2023 at 8:57

This summer, the Chicago Blackhawks are on the rise, and there's growing anticipation that their top draft pick could become the captain sooner than expected, similar to Connor McDavid's rapid ascent in Edmonton.

Another Strong Contender

But it's not just Bedard in the captaincy race. Veteran defenseman Seth Jones has also expressed his interest in leading the Blackhawks.


Jones has been with the Blackhawks for two seasons, scoring an impressive 88 points and missing only 14 games. While his performance hasn't quite matched his contract, he remains a crucial asset to the team.

Limited Alternatives

Looking beyond Bedard and Jones, the Blackhawks have few captaincy options. There are no experienced young players or veterans with long-term contracts, making it a two-person race.

Chicago might wait for Bedard to complete his rookie year before naming him captain for the 2024-25 season. But if they need a captain sooner, choosing between these two talented players will be a tough decision.
