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.
