The Winnipeg Jets have named Olli Jokinen and Mark Stuart as their alternate captains for the new season.

The pair replace Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom, who wore the letters last year.

Andrew Ladd remains the captain of the Jets.

The Jets are Jokinen's seventh NHL stop over a 14-season career. The 34-year-old forward signed with the Jets as an unrestricted free agent last summer before the lockout.

Stuart, 28, is starting his seventh NHL campaign. He began his career with the Boston Bruins before being traded to the Atlanta Thrashers prior to their move to Winnipeg.

The Jets dropped a 4-1 decision to the Ottawa Senators in their home opener on Saturday night and play in Boston against the Bruins on Monday afternoon.
