Former Washington Capitals first-line winger and forever hockey god Mike Knuble stopped by Joe Louis Arena today to visit with the Caps ahead of their game Friday night against the Red Wings. Usually, this is where I would make some kind of witty comment, but I have nothing to add other than YEY KANOOBS IS BACK! Knuble played just three seasons with the Caps (and, ew, he used to be a Flyer), but he left an indelible mark on this community. He’s a consummate professional, always great in a press scrum. After last night, the presence of a guy like Knuble might be exactly what this team needs.
I’m guessing there’ll be more about Knuble’s visit from the Caps or the beat writers. We’ll update this post when there is.
