The Calgary Flames have had a relatively quiet summer by their standards, and with their roster seemingly set ahead of a crucial 2023-24 season, there's only one major question left to answer.

Who gets a C?

Despite the negative air surrounding this team right now, they've got quite a solid roster, and according to fans, there's several names worthy of captaincy.
Among those names are Rasmus Andersson, Mackenzie Weegar, Jonathan Huberdeau and Mikael Backlund, but now, Sportsnet's Eric Francis has seemingly revealed new GM Craig Conroy's choice.

A respected young star

According to Francis, the team would like to name Backlund as captain, but given he seemingly has one foot out the door, it now appears they'll be handing the C to Swedish defenseman Rasmus Andersson.
The 26-year old has 377 games under his belt for Calgary, with his past two seasons being the best of his career, notching 50 and 49 points, and with his quiet leadership and consistency on the ice, he's seemingly the best choice, and one that would be well-received by fans.
