Stanley Cup-winning defenseman Christian Djoos did not have a roster spot in defensively-challenged Washington, but in Anaheim, he’s having a career renaissance. The longtime Capital, who spent the vast majority of the 2019-20 season with AHL Hershey, was traded to the Anaheim Ducks at the February 24 trade deadline for journeyman forward Daniel Sprong.
Sunday night at Honda Center, Djoos scored his first goal for the Ducks, a clutch late-game tally that forced overtime while the Ducks had their goalie, Ryan Miller, pulled.
One late deal from the Caps on deadline day: Washington has traded defender Christian Djoos to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for AHL right-winger Daniel Sprong.
The Hershey Bears’ final game before the AHL All-Star break was a nailbiter.
Despite breaking the scoring deadlock during the second period with a goal from Liam O’Brien, the Bears surrendered two goals to Providence’s Peter Cehlarik in the third. Providence went on the penalty kill due to a cross-check from Jack Studnicka late in the third, and the Bears pulled goaltender Pheonix Copley to give a 6-on-4 advantage. With just 21.5 seconds left in the third, Philippe Maillet scored to bring the tally even at 2-2.
Providence could not solve Pheonix Copley through overtime, nor the shootout, with Copley turning aside both shooters he faced. Maillet scored on his shootout attempt, and Christian Djoos ended the game with second round winner.
On Saturday morning the Capitals re-assigned defender Christian Djoos to the AHL Hershey Bears. Djoos played two games in his most recent stint, the second of which ended early due to an upper-body injury.
