Winnipeg Jets name Adam Lowry captain

Third captain has been named.

The Jets have themselves a new captain as the team announced this morning that Adam Lowry will be their third captain.

Adam Lowry back

Lowry was drafted by the Jets back in 2011 and has been a solid leader on the club. He is well respected by his teammates and is very adept with the media.

Winnipeg was without a captain last season after stripping Blake Wheeler of the title. The team’s first captain after they moved from Atlanta was Andrew Ladd who coincidentally retired from hockey a few days ago.

The soon-to-be 10 year pro has played 621 games wearing a Jets jersey. Lowry has three years left under his current contract.

The team also announced that Josh Morrissey and Mark Scheifele will remain as alternates.
