Happy Wednesday everybody. We’re just two days away from the NHL Draft! Here’s today’s news and links about the Washington Capitals and from around the NHL!

Washington Capitals

When asked about Braden Holtby, Korn had this to say (courtesy of the NBC Washington article):

“He’s very focused,” Korn said. “He’s very cerebral. He’s got a big body and he’s very athletic. Those things are great in today’s NHL game. I am Braden’s fourth goalie coach in the time that he’s been in Washington. I hope to bring some continuity, which hasn’t necessarily been there.

“We hope we can make him an elite goalie in the National Hockey League without putting too much pressure on him by making that statement.”
