The Washington Capitals Will Visit The White House On Monday

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post,

The Washington Capitals will join President Trump on Monday to celebrate their 2018 Stanley Cup victory at the White House, according to a team spokesman. The visit will come nearly 10 months after the team won its first championship in franchise history, and the event is expected to be more low-key than some in the past, though plans are still being finalized.

...Russian captain Alex Ovechkin confirmed that he will attend after the team’s 4-1 win at the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.

“We just found out today, so I don’t know what to say," he said. “I’m just excited. It’s nice.”

Said Swedish center Nicklas Backstrom: “It will be fun. It’s exciting, I think, and every time you get an invitation from the president and being at the White House, it’s going to be a great experience. ... I feel like it’s always up to whoever wants to go, but we got the invitation, and it’s been a tradition, I think, for many years. We’re not going to mix politics with sports. It’s because we won last year; that’s why we’re there. Yeah, it’ll be a cool experience, I think.”

Report- A One-Year Deal For Jimmy Howard Expected This Week

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

via Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Detroit Red Wings are expected to announce an extension for goaltender Jimmy Howard this week.

The one-year deal is expected to be in the $4 million range. Howard turns 35 on March 26, and a one-year deal offers little risk for the Wings. If he plays well, he’ll get another one-year extension.

The Wings don’t have a goalie prospect ready in the organization. Howard has given them steady to stellar goaltending the past three seasons. From the 2016-17 season through 2017-18 season, Howard accumulated a .915 save percentage and 2.63 goals against average. He has been one of the Wings’ best players this season, better than his .907 save percentage and 3.07 goals-against average through 47 games reflect.

The extension shores up the Wings' goaltending through next season, as Jonathan Bernier has two years left on his contract.
