On Tuesday, Capitals head coach Todd Reirden spoke to the media about changes he intends to make to special teams for the 2019-20 season. Of particular note was that Jakub Vrana, who signed a two-year, $6.7 million bridge contract with the Capitals over the summer, should see more time on the power-play.
“I think obviously Jakub’s done a lot of damage offensively five-on-five,” Reirden said. “I think for him to be able to contribute to special teams would be (good). The second unit, that would allow us to get some more production out of them.”
