Rangers Unveil Captains for 2023-24

Earlier today, the New York Rangers disclosed their selection for the season's captain and alternate captains.

They confirmed that Trouba will remain captain, and the alternates include Goodrow, Kreider, Panarin, Zibanejad and Fox. This lineup largely mirrors last season's choices, with Fox being the newcomer to the group of alternates.

Congrats, Foxy!

Many online couldn't help but comment on the sizable list of captains, especially with the inclusion of Fox.

Why is 25% of the team a captain 😂😂😂

A Lot of Leadership in the Rangers' Locker Room


Teams typically have about three assistant captains, but some have more. By including Fox, the Rangers boast 5 assistant captains out of a 23-player squad, translating to slightly above 20% of the team with leadership roles.

didnt even know u can have that many assistant captains😭😭

Some speculate the extensive list might be due to the Rangers rotating who wears the 'A' for different games or between home and away games. Nonetheless, the point remains that these players all hold the title of assistant-captains.

Calgary had a bunch too, maybe home and away alternates?
