New York Islanders prospect Griffin Reinhart was named captain of the Edmonton Oil Kings on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old defenseman, taken with the No. 4 pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, has played for the Western Hockey League team the past two seasons.
Michael St. Croix, who signed an entry-level contract with the New York Rangers on Friday, also was named an alternate captain.
The son of former Philadelphia Flyers goalie Rick St. Croix had 105 points (45 goals, 60 assists) in 72 regular-season games last season. He is the Oil Kings’ all-time leading scorer.
