SUNRISE, Fla. — Florida Panthers head coach Peter DeBoer announced today that D Bryan McCabe has been named the club's sixth team captain. Joining McCabe as assistant captains will be forwards Cory Stillman and Stephen Weiss.
 
"The selection of Bryan as the captain of our club was something that became obvious to our staff after working with him for the past year," said DeBoer. "He exudes all of the attributes you look for in a leader and will be a natural extension of the coaches and our message into the dressing room."

McCabe, 34, has previously served as captain of the NY Islanders during the 1997-98 campaign and also served as an assistant captain with each team he has played for over his 14-year playing career (NY Islanders, Vancouver, Chicago, Toronto, Florida). The Calgary, Alberta native has played in 986 National Hockey League games, registering 457 points (130-327-457) and 1,615 PIM.

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge.
