Brett Leason got the rookie treatment before his NHL debut against the Arizona Coyotes, Friday.
Lapierre skated several solo laps in warmups firing pucks on an empty net before the rest of his teammates joined him on the ice.

With Leason getting a game, the Capitals will have four rookies in their lineup in him, Connor McMichael, Hendrix Lapierre, and Martin Fehervary for the first time since a quite special 2017-18 season.
With Leason suiting up, the #Caps have 4 rookies in the lineup (McMichael, Lapierre and Fehervary are the others) for the 1st time since April 7, 2018 vs. NJD. In that game, WSH iced a lineup that included Shane Gersich, Jakub Vrana, Jakub Jerabek and Chandler Stephenson.
