The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that defenseman Adam Foote has been named team captain for the 2009-10 season.

"I’m honored to be named Avalanche captain," said Foote. "I’ve been with this franchise for the majority of my career and I know what the standards are here. I look forward to the challenge of leading this team, starting with training camp and heading into the regular season."

Foote will become only the second captain in Avalanche history, joining Joe Sakic. Overall, Foote is just the ninth different captain in the franchise’s 30-year history in the National Hockey League.

"We feel Adam’s leadership skills and veteran presence will make him a great captain," said Avalanche Head Coach Joe Sacco.  "He has been with this organization for a long time and he truly deserves our trust to lead this team at the present time."
