I can't see anyone being surprised by that one. He was the obvious choice, both on and off the ice. Last year he pretty much fulfilled the role although he had the wrong letter on his jersey.

I agree with you on Jones filling the role last year unofficially.

A good choice for the C, but about as much of a surprise as Saturday following Friday. It kinda felt to me like the A Ben Jones was wearing looked a lot like a C anyway. The only shock, for me, would have been if Jones was NOT named captain
Im looking forward to the Dogs getting back on the ice, and bulging the twine!

Captain Jones
By Bill Potrecz

http://www.bpsportsniagara.ca/captain-jones/

“It was pretty obvious to everyone who was qualified and would be great in the role and that would be Akil (Thomas) and Jones,” Burke said. “Jones is a year older and he carries himself like a pro. He comes to our rookie days even when I don’t ask him to.

“Whenever something needs to be done, he’s the first guy to do it and then he backs it up by turning into a premier player in the league.”

Is Burke saying the only two players that would be qualified to be captain was Jones and Thomas?

Seemed more like an apology to Thomas for his not getting the job, kind of like "you'll have it next year".

I call this "prima Donna politics" . You have to appease the Jones camp but if you don't tip your hat to the Thomas camp, you may have an offended star to contend with.
