ALEXEI YASHIN NAMED CAPTAIN
Veterans Parrish and Lukowich will wear the As

Alexei Yashin has been appointed the tenth captain in Islanders history. Veteran Islanders wing Mark Parrish and first-year Islanders defenseman Brad Lukowich have been named alternate captains.

"This is a very big honor for me," said Yashin after today's morning skate in preparation for tonight's pre-season game against the New York Rangers. "There are so many players on our team who are great leaders and would have been excellent choices, so this means a lot. This is a big responsibility that I take seriously. I'm very proud to follow the Islanders captains before me, like Ed Westfall, Denis Potvin and Mike Peca."

"Alexei is our leader, on and off the ice. This just makes it official," said Islanders head coach Steve Stirling. "We discussed this at length with Yash and all of our veterans. We're counting on the leadership of at least a dozen guys I can think of. Alexei, Mark and Brad will be at the forefront."

Yashin -- a former captain of the Ottawa Senators -- Parrish and Lukowich will have their letters stitched on their sweaters in time to make their debuts as captains at tonight's 7:00 pm game between the Islanders and the Rangers. Yashin follows previous Islanders captains Ed Westfall, Clark Gillies, Denis Potvin, Brent Sutter, Patrick Flatley, Bryan McCabe, Trevor Linden, Kenny Jonsson and Michael Peca.
