VIDEO: Dion Phaneuf looks to captain Maple Leafs back to Stanley Cup glory

When GM Brian Burke acquired Dion Phaneuf, many fans thought the defenseman would be a great choice as the next captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs. And Monday in downtown Toronto that speculation came true.

The Maple Leafs haven’t had a captain since Mats Sundin left the team in the summer of 2008. Phaneuf is the 18th captain in team history and hopes to be first since George Armstrong to hoist the Stanley Cup over his head.
Ryan Dixon takes a closer look at the new Leafs captain.
