If you answered Martin Lapointe you are correct!  Martin Lapointe was designated Captain of the Chicago Blackhawks towards the end of the 2005–06 season due to an injury to Adrian Aucoin. The coach at that time, Denis Savard, went a different direction from his regular decision to assign three alternate captains and instead had someone wear the C badge. Denis Savard explained, “whenever Aucoin is going to be out of the lineup, I’ll have a captain lined up at all times. It’s nothing against Aucoin. I just feel that when he’s out of the lineup, we need a `C’ on one of our leaders.”
