"The Toronto Maple Leafs will open their season tomorrow against the Ottawa Senators and they'll have a special announcement before it. Mike Babcock confirmed with James Duthie of TSN that the Leafs will name a captain sometime between tonight and tomorrow before puck drop. Rewind back a month ago, and the belief was that the Leafs' were preparing to name Auston Matthews captain. Then of course that came to a halt when Matthews police situation came to light.
