Flyers Designate Four Players to Rotate as Alternate Captains

Updated: Jan 15, 2021

On Tuesday afternoon, the Flyers announced their 23-man roster for opening night. They also unveiled their captain designations.

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.
