Monday Caps Clips: Significant Start to the Week

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps sent out a press release yesterday afternoon announcing that the team "will make a significant player-related announcement on Monday, May 17, at 10:30 a.m. at Kettler Capitals Iceplex." Odds are it isn't a long-term extension for Quintin Laing. Watch the announcement live here.
