Elias, Gionta and Zubrus each get an \'A\'
newjerseydevils.com – Following a training camp in which head coach Brent Sutter announced that the Devils' captaincy was up for grabs, the question of who will wear the 'A's has been answered.

Patrik Elias, Brian Gionta and Dainius Zubrus have been tapped as alternate captains, it has been announced.

The naming of the Devils' captains comes two days before the team's regular-season opener on Oct. 4 in Tampa Bay. New Jersey will play its first nine games on the road before returning for the Prudential Center opener on Oct. 27 against the Ottawa Senators at 7 p.m.

Elias was the team's leading scorer in 2006-07 with 21 goals and 48 assists for 69 points in 75 games.  He finished the '07 preseason with a plus-one rating in two games.

Gionta led the Devils in preseason scoring with four goals and four assists in five contests. The right winger collected 25 goals and 20 assists for 45 points in 62 games last season.

Zubrus, who was signed as a free agent in the off-season, tallied two goals in five preseason games, and is coming off a regular season in which he set career highs for goals (24), assists (36) and points (60).
