Washington Capitals favorite tire changer might get a chance to play in the NHL again, according to reports around the organization.
Brooks, who the Caps sent off to Toronto after the 2015/16 season is not officially part of the roster. This summer, following his marriage to Julianne Hough, he was given a player tryout (PTO) with the Kings. The tryout expired 1 October with no offer of a contract.

Now with Jeff Carter out with a lower-body injury- the door is open for someone to step in. Laich has been practicing with the Kings albeit without a contract, waiting his time out.
If it works out, it might only be a short-term opening. But who knows. We’re happy for him to be back in the game!!!
