Brooks Orpik, who came to the Washington Capitals from Pittsburgh in July 2014, missed 41 games during the regular season for a reported ‘bone’ injury. Unfortunately he is out again after sustaining a frightening hit at the hands of Flyers’ player Ryan White.
Orpik was off to a good post-season start. He was averaging 22 minutes a game. Although he only played half of the regular season, he recorded three goals and 10 points. Although Taylor Chorney has jumped back in again to fill the gap, Brooks is going to be missed.
Get well Brooks – we need you!!
