Predators name defenseman Roman Josi as 8th captain all-time

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) General manager David Poile and coach Peter Laviolette noticed how the Predators picked defenseman Roman Josi to drive a sword into the field before the NFL's Tennessee Titans' home opener with the NHL team serving an honorary role pregame.

Seeing what Josi's teammates decided made selecting the Predators' eighth captain in franchise history that much easier.

"Roman has played with and mentored under two of our best captains ever in Shea Weber and Mike Fisher," Poile said Tuesday. "He was also always part of the leadership group when those two guys were captains."
