The Vancouver Canucks are set to name their team captain Wednesday night at their home opener against the Los Angeles Kings.

Canucks head coach Travis Green announced last week that a player would debut with the 'C.'

"We've put a lot of thought into it. We don't take it lightly," Green said last Tuesday. "We think it's the right time for our organization and the right time for the person we are going to name, but we think it's a special moment and something that our fans should be able to witness firsthand."
