Barkov takes over as captain of Florida Panthers

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Aleksander Barkov is the best player in the Florida Panthers' dressing room. And so, it's been no secret that his being designated as that room's official leader was inevitable.

His time has arrived.

Barkov was announced as the 10th captain of the Panthers on Monday, with outgoing captain Derek MacKenzie ceremonially - and willingly - handing the 23-year-old Finnish star his first Florida jersey with a "C" stitched onto the shoulder. MacKenzie held the job for two years, always knowing that a member of the Panthers' young core would take the role one day.
