Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The Caps have a new goalie coach, Dmitry Orlov may be on the shelf for some time and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Mitch Korn, formerly of the Nashville Predators, is headed to DC to join his old boss as the Caps' new goaltending coach... [WaPoCSNWNBC4DSPRMNB]
  • ...which means Olie Kolzig is out, but not out of a job. [@CSNCapitals]
  • The Caps' gain is the Predators' loss, as Nashville's goalies have long benefited from Korn's expertise. [Tennessean]
  • The broken wrist he sustained at the World Championships last month is expected to keep Dmitry Orlov out until late September. [WaPo, RMNB]
  • The last time the Caps would ever face Ryan Miller in a Buffalo jersey did not end so well for the good guys. [Peerless]
  • Top-line center Jay Beagle has his end-of-season chat with Mike Vogel. [Rinkside Update]
  • Wonder how many times people will say the Caps aren't buying out Brooks Laich before we all believe the Caps aren't buying out Brooks Laich. [WaPo]
  • So if they're not buying him out, what should the Caps do with him? [WaPo]
  • And speaking of potential buyout candidates, there's a chance Mike Richards becomes available this summer...so should the Caps go after him? [CSNW]
  • Checking out the prospects who could go 1-10 in the upcoming draft. [AIH]
  • Hershey center (and brief Cap) Peter LeBlanc is headed to Sweden... [WaPo]
  • ...and former Caps' defenseman Alexander Urbom is on his way to the KHL. [Fire & Ice]
  • Meanwhile, former Hershey Bears' head coach Mark French is on his way back from the KHL, as he takes over behind the bench for the WHL's Calgary Hitmen. [Hitmen HockeyPatriot-NewsSHOE]
  • And former Caps' head coach Dale Hunter gets overlooked for Canada's World Junior team... again. [Metro]
  • Steve Oleksy talks about his work with the Eastside Elite Hockey League, the summer league he founded. [MiHockey]
