Easy question. I didn't get to watch the Flames vs Canucks last Saturday night.

 

When Glenny wasn't playing, who recieved an 'A' alongside Cammy and Gio?

 

Thanks, Boomer

According to http://www.nhl.com/s...13/RO020568.HTM nobody did. Just went with two assistants.

Weird. For some reason I have it in my head that you are REQUIRED to have three captains in every game. I know I can't recall a game we had only 2 letters on the ice since the 04-05' lockout.

The rules clear it up:

 

"Either one Captain and no more than two Alternate Captains, or no Captain and no more than three Alternate Captains are permitted"

I still find it strange we didn't designate a third alternate. Tanguay and Sarich have even worn an 'A' in the past few years.
