Kim Johnsson Named December Captain

Much to the chagrin of the Wild blogosphere, Mikko Koivu has lost his C to fellow Finn Swede (what's the difference? They're not Norwegian, so who cares?) Kim Johnsson. While not a horrible choice, in my opinion, the time was now for Mikko Koivu to be named the permanent captain.

Johnsson’s had a very strong season so far, and Jacques Lemaire wanted to reward him. Lemaire said changing things up was no slight to Koivu, whom he praised endlessly. Johnsson has never worn the ‘C’ before. He was handed the sweater in a locker room meeting before the skate, and he did the traditional lap around the locker room high-fiving his teammates.
