Defenseman Roman Josi was named the eighth captain in Nashville Predators history Tuesday.

Josi, 27, has played all six of his NHL seasons for the Predators and has finished in the top 15 in Norris Trophy voting as best defenseman in the League each of the past three seasons.

He replaces Mike Fisher, who retired Aug. 3 after 17 NHL seasons with the Predators and Ottawa Senators. Fisher had been named captain after Shea Weber was traded to the Montreal Canadiens on June 29, 2016.

Defenseman Ryan Ellis was named associate captain. Forwards Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg and defenseman Mattias Ekholm were announced as alternate captains.

Ellis, 26, had NHL career highs in goals (16) and points (38) in 2016-17, and had 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 22 games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He is expected to be out of the lineup until approximately January while recovering from offseason knee surgery.
