Two Caps File
Today was the last day for NHL players to file for arbitration, and two Washington players did so. Center Brooks Laich and defenseman Shaone Morrisonn both opted for arbitration, while center Boyd Gordon did not. Those three players along with right wing Eric Fehr are the Capitals’ only unsigned restricted free agents.
By virtue of filing for arbitration, Laich and Morrisonn are no longer eligible to receive RFA offer sheets from other NHL clubs.
The arbitration schedule will be set later this week with all hearings scheduled between July 20 and Aug. 4.
