Defender Shannon Hurn retains his place as captain and will lead the club for a third successive season.
Midfielder Luke Shuey has been been promoted to vice-captain and he will share the role with forward Josh Kennedy.
“Initially the players voted and having the support of their peers is an important element for the leadership group,” coach Adam Simpson said.
“The club is in a fortunate position to have high quality people to lead the squad and we believe there is a blend of skills within our leaders.
“Shannon Hurn has been a terrific leader since his appointment as captain three years ago and he has great respect from his teammates. Over the last couple of years Luke Shuey, Andrew Gaff and Jeremy McGovern have certainly grown within the group and it has been reflected in the player vote.
“Clearly Josh Kennedy and Matt Priddis have been outstanding leaders for a long time and to have someone of Sam Mitchell’s calibre at our disposal will be invaluable.”
