With the formal unveiling of Jason Spezza as the new captain of the Ottawa Senators, Senators owner Eugene Melnyk offered his thoughts on the newest Senator to wear the 'C' and the eighth player in team history to have the distinction.

Here's what he had to say...

Jason has been a integral member of this franchise for the duration of my time as owner of the club and his passion for the game, his teammates and, above all, his desire to see this team attain ultimate success makes him a great fit to be our next captain. Jason and his family have shown a great commitment to this team and this community and I know that he will be a wonderful representative as captain of our franchise.
