  • GMBM has been on a blueliner shopping spree since free agency began, but where does Washington stand with RFA Jonas Siegenthaler? [NBCSW]
  • The Caps launched a virtual voting hub this week ahead of the November 3rd election. It contains resources on voting, volunteering, and the census for DC, Virginia, and Maryland. [Caps]
  • On Monday, Caps’ defensive prospect Alex Alexeyev scored his first career KHL goal while skating on the top pair for Salavat Yulaev Ufa. [NoVa Caps]
  • The Caps acquired a steal in Trevor van Riemsdyk, so let’s take a closer look at him. [StarsandSticks]
  • Prospect Aliaksei Protas tied Dinamo Minsk’s franchise record for most goals by a 19-year-old, scoring his fourth goal of the season on Sunday. [NoVa Caps]
  • In former Capitals news, the Golden Knights traded Nate Schmidt to the Canucks on Monday to make room for UFA acquisition Alex Pietrangelo. That means there’s a nice little reunion of Jay Beagle, Braden Holtby, and Schmidt happening in Vancouver this season. [NHL]
  • Speaking of Holtby, do you want to be sad? Yes? Then go ahead and watch the incredibly heartfelt tribute to Holtby that Tom Wilson shared on Instagram yesterday. Grab a tissue, folks. [Tom Wilson]
  • Happy belated 35th birthday to Mike Green, happy belated 55th birthday to Todd Krygier, and happy 55th birthday to Paul Cavallini!
