Gallant, Grant, Langtry Named Colorado Mammoth Captains

from press release

DENVER – The Colorado Mammoth announced today that defenseman John Gallant, the longest-tenured player with the organization, will retain his captainship this season. Forwards John Grant Jr. and Brian Langtry have been named Mammoth assistant captains for the first time.

"John Gallant has displayed tremendous leadership for years," said Mammoth President and General Manager Steve Govett. "He did an admirable job as the team captain in 2010, and we expect that to continue this year."

Grant was an assistant captain with the Rochester Knighthawks before being acquired by the Mammoth in October.

"Grant is a veteran voice on the offensive end," said Hamley. "When he speaks, his teammates listen."

Langtry, a member of the Mammoth since the team moved to Colorado in 2003, has recorded the most points on the team in the past two seasons.

"Brian's as vocal and passionate as anyone I've ever met," said Govett. "From lengthy conversations we've had with him, there's no question that he's excited to be an assistant captain and to get the season started."

The three captains have a combined 28 years of playing experience in the National Lacrosse League. Grant is just six points shy of 900 for his career, while Langtry will reach the coveted 500-point career plateau later this season.
