Superstar Alex Ovechkin revealed who the next Washington Capitals captain will be which is a no-brainer.

After two decades with the Washington Capitals, Alex Ovechkin acknowledges that his time as their leader will soon come to an end. Following the team's playoff exit, Ovechkin himself suggested that Tom Wilson is likely to be his successor as captain.

Alex Ovechkin said himself today that Tom Wilson is likely the next captain.




Despite being 30 years old, Wilson is seen as the ideal candidate due to his decade-long tenure with the Capitals and the absence of younger players poised to take on leadership roles. Ovechkin's retirement looms, with his career likely not extending much further into his 40s.


Wilson, although often a polarizing figure in the NHL, is highly regarded within the Capitals organization, particularly by his teammates. Having signed a long-term extension last summer, he appears to be the logical choice for the next captain of the Washington Capitals.
