Brooks Orpik's first season with the Washington Capitals went very well.
Orpik led the team in hits (306) and blocks (192) while averaging 21:47 minutes per contest. He's not known for his offensive work, but he also recorded a respectable 19 assists in 78 games. "Talk about one of the guys who had as big an impact of any player that we added to our locker room, he had a tremendous impact on our team, and he'll continue to do that," coach Barry Trotz said. Orpik will celebrate his 35th birthday in September, so age is a growing concern for the physical blueliner. May 19 - 2:56 PM
