Ex-Cap but forever-honorary-Washingtonian Brooks Laich was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs late Sunday night. Since then, it has been a whirlwind for Laich, playing in his first Leafs game the next day.
Tuesday, Laich took to Instagram to thank Capitals fans for all their support. It was classy.
I want to express my extreme gratitude and my sincerest thank you to everyone in the DMV area for all you have given me in the last 12 years! I appreciate you letting me share the wonderful game of hockey with you, and I hold the people and the city in the highest regard! I am incredibly humbled by the support I have received in the past two days, and want to thank each and every one of you for the impact you have had on my life and my career!
Earlier in the day, Laich also posted a picture from his debut as a Leafs player.
