  • Print

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Forward Ryan Callahan will serve as team captain for the New York Rangers this season.

The 26-year-old native of Rochester, N.Y., will take over from Chris Drury, who announced his retirement last month.

"Ryan Callahan embodies all the leadership qualities we seek from our captain," Rangers general manager Glen Sather said Monday in a release. "He leads by example with courage and a tireless work ethic on and off the ice, which is why he is so deserving of this honour."

Callahan, 26, has served as an alternate captain for the last two seasons. He has recorded 144 points (76 goals, 68 assists) in 284 career regular-season games.

Brad Richards and Marc Staal will serve as alternate captains this season.

Callahan is coming off his most productive season in the NHL. He had career highs in goals (23), assists (25) and points (48) last season despite missing 22 games due to injury.
