It's official, Derek MacKenzie has been name the ninth captain in Florida Panthers history.
"Derek embodies the type of character and work ethic we want a Florida Panther to possess," President of Hockey Ops Dale Tallon said. "He is a respected leader both on and off the ice in this organization and within the South Florida community. We are very excited to move forward with Derek as our team's captain." A surprising choice to say the least as the 35-year-old MacKenzie has seen just 453 games worth of NHL action since being drafted in 1999. He's also entering his third season with Florida and has averaged just 12:45 a night with them. Be that as it may he'll be joined by Jussi Jokinen and, presumably the team's 10th captain, Aaron Ekblad with "A's" on their chests. Oct 9 - 1:20 PM
