The 13th Captain in Islanders history was announced today, as Mark Streit takes over the “C” from the retired Doug Weight.
“It’s truly an honor to be named the captain of such a historic franchise with a rich history,” Streit said to reporters at a press conference today. “To follow in the foot-steps of so many legendary leaders that represented the Islanders is a role I am excited to fill. It is a privilege to be considered one of the leaders of this team and I’m committed to taking this team to the next level.”
A easy and smart choice by the team, Streit will be a quiet leader, one that will show the example and watch the rest of the team follow it.
