The New Jersey Devils have announced that defenseman Bryce Salvador will serve as captain for the 2012-13 season.

Salvador, 36, joined the Devils during the 2007-08 season in a trade from the St. Louis Blues. He's played parts of four seasons in New Jersey, missing the entire 2010-11 campaign with a concussion. He signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract this summer.

Zach Parise, who spent one season as captain of the Devils, signed with the Minnesota Wild in July.

Ilya Kovachuk and Patrik Elias will serve as alternate captains.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
