On Sunday, Jay Beagle signed a four-year, $12 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks, leaving the Capitals after playing parts of 10 seasons in Washington DC.
We may have gotten a clue that Beagle was leaving the organization in mid June. A day after the Caps championship parade, the fourth-line center received a game-used stick from Alex Ovechkin during the team’s breakdown day. Beagle interrupted Ovechkin during a TV interview so that he could sign it.
NBC4 Washington posted the clip on June 14.
