Grubauer played for the Starbulls from 2004-2008, representing all levels of the organization, before leaving for the OHL and the Belleville Bulls. Grubauer will likely take the Cup to his hometown team’s rink, emilo-Stadion, but no additional details have been released yet.
Before the NHL Draft, the Capitals traded the blossoming goaltender and Brooks Orpik to the Colorado Avalanche for a second-round pick. Grubauer signed a three-year, $10 million contract a day later.
