Which Billerica, Mass., Native and Former Bruin Was Named Predators' First Ever Captain in 1998?The Nashville Predators may have a short history, but that's not to say the club doesn't have a few local ties to the Boston area.

The first one being assistant general manager Paul Fenton — a Cathedral High School (Springfield) alum and a former Boston University hockey standout. Also, the team's first ever captain was a Billerica, Mass., native and Providence College alum.

Back in 1998, when the Preds first skated onto the hockey scene, this Massachusetts native was named the team's first captain. He then went on to a brief stint with the Bruins and even served as a NESN analyst.
