    Has to be nothing more than depth for Hershey or SC. But then again the Caps were terrible on the faceoff dot last year.

    I understand he was a teammate of Hendrix Lapierre on his junior hockey team, Chicoutimi Sagueneens.

    So we have just signed a French forward and a French goalie? Weren’t we hoping for more Finnish players?
