It's done! Nick Suzuki is the new captain of the Montreal Canadiens and his assistants are, not surprisingly, Brendan Gallagher and Joel Edmundson.

Although #11 has been with the team since his draft year in 2010 and officially with the team since the 2012-13 season, it's not at all surprising or even disappointing to see Nick get the C:
« I'm not disappointed at all that I'm not a captain. I'm very fortunate to have the role I have on this team, very fortunate to have been here for many years - disappointment is not one of the emotions I felt." - Brendan Gallagher

Gallagher might have been frustrated with the situation. He was left out when Max Pacioretty was named a few years ago, then Shea Weber and now Nick Suzuki. It can't be easy, especially since he's always given his all on the ice, but he keeps a great attitude.
This situation is reminiscent of the appointment of Ryan O'Reilly as captain of the Blues after Alex Pietrangelo left for Vegas. Vladimir Tarasenko did not hesitate to express his displeasure.
