No timeframe for captaincy decision

When it comes to selecting a captain, Peter DeBoer said the choice often becomes obvious in time.

It’s early at training camp, though, and the new head coach is still learning about the players and personalities on the team. He hasn’t set a timetable for filling the Devils’ vacant captaincy just yet, but expects to make an announcement before the home opener against Philadelphia on Oct. 8.

“I’m getting to know the group,” DeBoer said. “It’s down my list of priorities on things we’re trying to get done right now. I think that that’ll reveal itself here, probably sooner than later. I don’t think it’s a decision that’s going to take a long time to make. For where we’re at now in camp, it’s not even a topic of conversation right now.”

DeBoer said he won’t need a ballot box to figure out the players’ choice.

“It’s not rehearsed, it’s being around them everyday, being around the dressing room, watching guys in different situations, listening to what’s heard,” he explained. “I think that’s where you get the true player representation of where the leadership lies.”

The Devils have been without a captain since Jamie Langenbrunner was traded to Dallas in January.

"The way they act, the way guys take control of situations – you get those signs," DeBoer said of the qualities he's looking for. "That all goes into play in the final decision."
