Mike Cammalleri

This may not happen, but I think you could consider him a person of interest for the Devils captaincy. Of course, there are longer-standing Devils on the team. However, Cammalleri is a 13-year veteran with experience and is a proven player on the ice.

You have to feel a little sympathy for the guy. He’s been a good player, with bad timing. He’s been on the Los Angeles Kings before their success, two stints with the Calgary Flames, Montreal Canadiens, and now the Devils.

His first year with the team resulted in 42 points through 68 games played, including 27 goals and 15 assists. That was good to lead the team.

Cammallerri is signed through 2019. If not the captaincy, perhaps an alternate captain could be in the works for the veteran.
