After spending the last two seasons with the Arizona Coyotes, Richard Panik signed with the Washington Capitals as a free agent on July 1, inking a four-year, $11 million deal. Panik is slotted on the depth chart to fill in on the third line for Brett Connolly who left as an unrestricted free agent.
Panik’s move was official then, but now it’s starting to feel really real. The Czech forward recently got his new gear for the upcoming season, which includes red, white, and navy blue Capitals gloves.
He had his one-year-old daughter Lilien model them on his Instagram Story.
