After signing with the Capitals on a one-year deal last summer, center Nic Dowd turned out to be a surprise impact player for the Capitals in their bottom-six forward group, cementing himself as the team’s fourth-line center. After signing a contract extension shortly after the end of the regular season, Dowd’s good luck continued, as he and his wife announced earlier today they are expecting their first child.

In a post to her Instagram account, Dowd’s wife Paige shared pictures of the couple with their Golden Retriever Arlo, showing an ultrasound image and baby clothes with the caption: : “Our sweet surpise, rainbow baby [a term used for a baby born after a miscarriage] Dowd coming January 2020”.

After signing with the Caps to a one-year deal prior to the 2018-19 season, Dowd recorded 22 points (eight goals, 14 assists) in 64 games played, with a plus-10 rating while averaging 10:18 a game for Head Coach Todd Reirden; he added a goal in seven playoff games. The Caps re-signed him to a three-year, $2.25 million deal shortly after the end of the regular season.

Congratulations to the Dowd Family!
