  • Brooks Orpik: Announces retirement
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik announced his retirement from the NHL on Tuesday. Orpik was never much of a fantasy asset during his long NHL career due to his lack of offensive ability, but the two-time Stanley Cup champion was a dependable stay-at-home defender and a strong locker-room presence throughout his 15 seasons in the league, making him an invaluable piece for any organization. The 18th overall pick from the 2000 NHL Entry Draft will retire having totaled 18 goals and 194 points in 1,035 career regular-season appearances.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Uncertain of next step
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik said he will take some time to decide his playing future, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Orpik missed 27 games during the 2018-19 season with a knee injury and admitted the effects of the injury lingered for the rest of the year. The 38-year-old's career is certainly in its twilight, but the two-time Stanley Cup-winner will take plenty of time to decide his next step. While his presence as a physical force and vocal leader would likely be welcomed back by an NHL team in 2019-20, father time has likely all but erased most of his fantasy value.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Unlikely OT hero
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik scored the overtime winner in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes in Game 2 of their first-round series. The 38-year-old blueliner swooped into the zone and blasted a centering pass from Evgeny Kuznetsov right by Hurricanes goalie Petr Mrazek to end overtime just 1:48 into the extra frame. Scoring isn't Orpik's primary skill, as he had only two goals and nine points in 53 games this season, his lowest mark since posting eight points in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. He already has two points and 11 hits in this series so far, with Saturday's goal giving the Capitals the 2-0 series lead.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Picks apple in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik recorded an assist and seven hits over 17:27 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 win over Carolina. Orpik earned a secondary assist after gathering the loose puck behind Washington's net and advancing it to John Carlson, who found Nicklas Backstrom for the score. Thursday's point is the California native's first since earning an assist against the Hurricanes on March 28. Orpik's seven hits in this contest were a season high, giving him 131 over 53 games in this campaign.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Bags apple Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik tallied an assist, a plus-2 rating and six hits during Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes. The helper snapped a 10-game scoring drought for Orpik, bringing him to two goals and nine points in 49 games. The 38-year-old will be relied upon heavily in the defensive zone following the injury to Michal Kempny (leg) but can be safely ignored in most fantasy formats due to his lack of offensive production.
