A
The A on a player's jersey stands for Assistant Captain or Alternate Captain - they are the same thing, they perform the same role, they are just known by different titles around the world. Because ice hockey teams play in shifts of players, the Captain isn't always on the ice - so there are two A's on each team so that, hopefully, there is always a Captain on the ice. The Captain (or the A) is the only player allowed to query decisions with the Officials.
