Rolston Named Captain To Open Season
The Minnesota Wild will name Brian Rolston the team captain for the month of October at practice today. The team will continue to use the rotating captaincy this season.
Rolston and Wes Walz will be the permanent alternate captains this season, but because Rolston is this month’s captain, Kim Johnsson will wear the "A" in October.
Rolston served as captain for one month last season during February. The left winger is coming off his best NHL season in which he played in all 82 games and posted a career-high 79 points, including 34 goals.
