The Buffalo Sabres have named forwards Thomas Vanek and Steve Ott as new team captains.
The two are expected to split duties with Vanek serving as captain for home games and Ott will serve as captain on the road.
Defenceman Christian Ehrhoff was also named an alternate captain.
The Sabres traded their former captain Jason Pominville at the 2013 NHL trade deadline to the Minnesota Wild.
