  • Mattias Sjögren speaks - the newly-signed Swede spoke by phone with the Caps' print press corps. Takeaways:
    • Sjögren won't participate in development camp in July, but is planning to arrive in DC well ahead of the beginning of training camp. [DCEx (blog, story)]
    • "They’re looking for a third- or fourth-line center, and my goal is to take one of those spots...I know it’s going to be tough to compete for one of those two spots, I know I have to be humble, but I hope I can get a chance to prove what I can do." [CI (Carrera)]
    • "There was a lot of interest. I had a lot of phone calls from teams. I talked to my agent and we said, ‘Let’s narrow it down – Washington and Montreal.’ Montreal and Washington I think was great opportunity for me, both teams. I like everything about it. I decided Washington." [WashTimes (blog, story)]
