The San Jose Sharks lost their former captain to free agency, luckily the team is full of potential replacements capable of taking on the  role.

After 4 seasons as captain of the San Jose Sharks Joe Pavelski left the Bay in search of other opportunities, eventually landing in Dallas Texas with the Stars. Now Team Teal is left with deciding who is going to fill in the void he left on and off the ice.

Luckily the Sharks have plenty of quality professionals who are more than capable of taking the reigns of captaincy along with the expected media pressure that comes along with it.

Not long after the news of Pavelski’s departure everyone naturally turned their attention to Logan Couture. Entering his 11th season dawning a teal sweater the 30-year-old has shown the ability to shine in crucial moments and take the heat when the team is experiencing darker times.

San Jose’s 9th overall selection in the 2007 NHL Draft is natural fit for the leadership and would be a perfect choice when the time comes around to choosing the captain of the 2019 – 2020 Sharks.

Nonetheless, this roster is full of world class individuals capable of contributing more and would make excellent faces of the Sharks franchise.
