The 26-year-old Pacioretty was one of five alternates last season, along with Subban, Markov and Plekanec.

Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin said recently the club would have one captain this season.

Pacioretty is the third U.S.-born captain of the Habs, joining Brian Gionta, who wore the “C” from 2010-2014 and Chris Chelios, who was co-captain with Guy Carbonneau in 1989-90.

He’s the first left-winger to be captain since Bob Gainey.
