Jay Beagle: “This is My Home. I Want to Come Back Here”


Jay Beagle enters this summer as a pending unrestricted free agent. A favorite among the fans because of his personable traits, Beagle made NHL history by becoming the first player to win the Kelly Cup (ECHL), Calder Cup (AHL) and the Stanley Cup. During his exit interview, Beagle spoke to reporters about the contract situation.

First Beagle said that he’s heading out tomorrow and that he had a great season and playoffs but that it’ll be good to get back to reality. Beagle continued his session saying that he hasn’t had any contract discussions with general manager Brian MacLellan. He is aware of the big decisions the Capitals have to make (see John Carlson) but is willing to wait until that is all sorted out.

Beagle wants to come back and he calls Washington “home.”

Additionally Beagle said this about how the Capitals performed this season compared to the past, “We built our game all year and peaked at the right time. In past years we peaked in December and January and then tried to hold on to it.”

In case Beagle does leave Washington, he got a good gift.

As far as Stanley Cup plans, Ovechkin is invited to the party but just not the farm.
