Hughes will share the role with Chris Hill, the Wolves’ skipper for the last three years, with Kevin Brown retaining his position as vice-captain.
Warrington head coach Steve Price said: “We feel it’s our best fit going forward.
“With Chris not playing a full 80 minutes, and Kev being the current vice-captain and doing a really good job looking after all our attacking structures, I felt that we needed a player who could support Chris in that role.
“As a stand-out performer in our pre-season, epitomising our standards and what we are trying to drive here at the club, there’s no better person than Jack Hughes to complement Chris and Kev.”
