Max Pacioretty was helping to get his two kids ready for bed when a call cheap andrei markov t-shirt came from Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin.

¡°We had the wrong cheap andrei markov caps house,¡± Bergevin said with a big laugh Friday wholesale andrei markov socks about his gaffe while trying to inform Pacioretty he had been elected by his teammates as the 29th captain in Canadiens history.¡°Once he saw which house it was, they pulled up and I knew right away,¡± said Pacioretty. ¡°It¡¯s something I¡¯ll always remember.¡±
The Canadiens opted to have a single captain this season after going with four alternates in 2014-¡¯15: Pacioretty, centre Tomas Plekanec and defencemen Andrei Markov and P.K. Subban.
Bergevin had said a captain would be named before the end of training camp and even the players were surprised that the vote was taken on the first night of camp Thursday.

He¡¯s the first left-winger wholesale andrei markov jerseys to be captain since Bob Gainey.
¡°To have the support of my teammates, I¡¯d put it up there with the top feelings in my life,¡± said Pacioretty, who choked up more than once at a news conference at the team¡¯s training base. ¡°I¡¯ve played with two captains here, Brian Gionta and Saku Koivu.
¡°I¡¯ll think cheap canadiens andrei markov jerseys back on how they handled situations and use cheap andrei markov jerseys china that.¡±
