ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals are supportive of Henrik’s decision to step away from hockey at this time due to his heart condition. Our players’ health is of the utmost importance, and we stand behind Henrik’s decision. We want to wish him and his family all the best moving forward.

I like the way your thinking, take Fluery for a prospect, and then trade him to Washington for a prospect eating 50% of the salary, can we eat salary beyond this season though? Does Washington have dead weight to ship back?

Thank you, Henrik, for a stellar career.  Sorry you didn’t win the Cup against the Kings, but you gave it everything you had.
