On July 1, 2014, the Washington Capitals signed Brooks Orpik to a five-year, $27.5 million deal. Orpik finally scored his first goal as a Capital tonight. It comes in his 79th regular season game and second season with the team.
In the words of Craig Laughlin, it was a beautiful, goal scorer’s goal.
After taking a pass from Jason Chimera, Tom Wilson curled around the net and tossed a perfect, flat pass to Orpik at the point. The defender then one-timed the puck past Devils goaltender Keith Kincaid.
Orpik’s last goal was a looooong time ago.
Brooks Orpik's last regular season goal was 573 days ago with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He scored on March 16, 2014 against the Flyers.
