The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday morning for a practice following a four-point weekend against the Maple Leafs and Canadiens. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Tomas Vokoun left the ice about 20 minutes in to practice for an undisclosed reason, but according to Sky Kerstein of 106.7 the FAN radio, he has not been asked to waive his no-trade clause. It does not look like he will be traded at this juncture.
Every healthy Capital was on the ice for the skate. The lines were as follows: Ovechkin-Johansson-Knuble, Hendricks-Laich-Brouwer, Chimera-Perreault-Semin, and Beagle-Halpern-Ward. Also of note, Nicklas Backstrom has been placed on long-term injured reserve, opening up his $6.7 million cap hit for deals to be made.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for trade deadline coverage by following me on twitter here.
