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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
