Shuey's calmness under pressure has drawn widespread praise.

The 27-year-old even managed to have a chuckle to himself once the final siren of extra time sounded as he lined up for goal.

Shuey joined Kennedy as a vice-captain at the start of this year, with 30-year-old Hurn now in his third season as skipper.

Kennedy said Shuey will be the perfect candidate to take over from Hurn whenever the hard-nosed defender decides to relinquish the role.

West Coast coach Adam Simpson has declared star midfielder Luke Shuey a certain starter in Saturday’s AFL clash with Carlton at the MCG. Shuey injured a toe during last week’s 80-point win over Gold Coast, but he has been given the green light to face the Blues.

"I can probably tell you now that he'll take it," Kennedy said of Shuey.

"I won't be taking the captaincy. I'm happy just sitting behind the scenes.

"Shuey has been a terrific footballer for this club. He's a terrific vice-captain.

"And I've got no doubt he'll probably come on and captain our footy club for many more years."

Kennedy booted two goals in extra time to help West Coast secure victory.

But he managed just one goal in regular time, and later conceded he was beaten on the night.

Kennedy managed just one goal in the final-round win against Adelaide, when the Eagles racked up 100 points.

His past two games have been in stark contrast to the previous six, where he racked up 30 goals.

The two-time Coleman medallist said it was a good sign that West Coast were winning games even when he was quiet.

"I don't think I played that well on the weekend. I was out of it a lot of the game," Kennedy said.

"But it was great to see guys like Jack (Darling) step up. And big Drew Petrie was unbelievable. He really set us up.

"Having a lot more wider spread of players, is what you want, especially coming to this time of the year."

Kennedy said he was right in the thick of the team celebrations immediately after Shuey kicked the goal.

"I threw a few elbows to try to get towards Luke," Kennedy joked.

"I got right in the middle, and was just giving him a big hug. I didn't want to let him go. It was a great end to the game."
