STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Evgeni Malkin said today that he will serve as an alternate captain for the Penguins in October.
"First month," Malkin said after practice at Globe Arena. "We'll rotate."
Coach Michel Therrien did not confirm the decision, saying an announcement on his club's alternates would be made "this weekend."
Defenseman Brooks Orpik, whose dressing-room leadership has been unanimously praised by teammates, neither confirmed nor denied yesterday that he has also been chosen to serve as an alternate - though, perhaps not on a rotating basis
