Capitals Pay Tribute To Stanley Cup Champion Jakub Vrana

The Washington Capitals paid tribute to former Capitals forward and Stanley Cup champion Jakub Vrana during the first period of Tuesday night’s game against the Detroit Red Wings. The Capitals presented a “thank you”  tribute video played in the arena during the game’s first television timeout.

This was Vrana’s first appearance at Capital One Arena since he was traded for Anthony Mantha back on April 12, 2021, almost two full years ago.

In 284 career games with the Capitals, Vrana has recorded 76 goals, 157 points, and a +36 rating. He set career-highs in goals (25) and points (52) in 69 games during the 2019-20 season. He recorded three goals and eight points in 23 games during the 2018 Stanley Cup run.
