Pittsburgh Penguins choose three alternate captains for Sidney Crosby @NHLdotcom

PITTSBURGH - Two of the Pittsburgh Penguins' three alternate captains are about twice as old as 20-year-old Sidney Crosby, the youngest team captain in NHL history.

The Penguins' three alternates will be forward Gary Roberts, 41, forward Mark Recchi, 39, and defenceman Sergei Gonchar, 33.

The Penguins open the season Friday at Carolina.

Crosby was chosen as the team captain in May. Last season, the Penguins did not designate a captain.
