After five seasons with the organization, the Nashville Predators named forward Patric Hornqvist an alternate captain.

Center Mike Fisher is the other alternate, while defenseman Shea Weber wears the big “C” as the team's captain.

The Predators made Hornqvist the last player taken in the 2005 NHL Draft and he's been one of the biggest steals in team history.
 
The 26-year-old Hornqvist has 84 career goals and 79 assists, his best season came in 2009-10 when he posted a career high 30 goals and 51 points.

He replaces Marty Erat as an alternate captain. Erat was traded to the Washington Capitals at the end of last season.
