Claude Giroux is getting ready to start his ninth season as the Flyers captain, and he will have four different teammates wearing the "A" throughout the season. Those players are:
Permanent Alternate Captain: Sean Couturier
Permanent HOME Alternate Captain: Ivan Provorov
Rotating ROAD Alternate Captain: Kevin Hayes
Rotating ROAD Alternate Captain: Jakub Voracek
Even though he's only 24 years old, it shouldn't be surprising that Provorov has entered the picture as a veteran presence and a leader in the locker room. He has yet to miss a game since he entered the league in 2016; his ironman streak currently sits at 315 games. When the time comes for Giroux to end his tenure as a captain, Provorov will likely be among the favorites to take over as the 20th team captain in Flyers history.
