  • Avalanche's Brooks Orpik: Waived for buyout purposes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:20 pm ET) Orpik was placed on waivers Saturday for the purpose of a contract buyout by the Avalanche, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    The Capitals traded Orpik to the Avalanche -- along with goalie Phillipp Grubauer -- in exchange for the 47th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft (Kody Clark from OHL Ottawa) on Friday, but the veteran defenseman was never expected to be retained by Colorado. Instead, it gave the Western Conference club leverage in acquiring Grubauer, while the Capitals saved cap space to potentially pave the way for the Stanley Cup champions to re-sign John Carlson. It wouldn't be surprising if Orpik clears waivers and heads right back to Washington under more favorable terms for GM Brian MacLellan.

    Avalanche's Brooks Orpik: Moving on from Washington

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/22/18) The Capitals dealt Orpik to the Avalanche on Friday -- along with goaltender Philipp Grubauer -- in exchange for the 47th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    TSN's Pierre LeBrun passes on word that Colorado is trying to trade Orpik, and the club is expected to buy him out if the effort fails. Washington needed to create cap space in an attempt to sign pending UFA defender John Carlson, and moving Orpik's $5.5 million contract was their clearest and easiest path to doing so. Orpik, who posted zero goals and 10 assists in 81 games last season, has one year remaining on his deal.

    Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Nasty-sounding injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/14/18) Orpik told Capitals beat writer Tarik El-Bashir that his pinkie finger "kinda fell off" following a slash during the Game 2 win over the Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Finals. The defenseman also suffered an unrelated hand injury earlier in the playoffs that might require surgery.

    As for the pinkie, the digit was immediately stitched back on and Orpik played the rest of the series without issue. While Orpik may need to come up with a different plan to clear the water out of his left ear following swims this summer, we imagine the giant Stanley Cup sitting beside him on the next pool chair made it all well worth the while. We'll have to wait for a prognosis on the other hand injury, though, to see if surgery is required. No one can ever say hockey players aren't tough.

    Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Punishes and sacrifices in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/4/18) Orpik registered six blocked shots and six hits Monday, helping hold off the Golden Knights in a 6-2 win in Game 4.

    Orpik isn't much for scoring, but leading the Capitals in hits and blocked shots was a pretty strong accomplishment. If your league rewards defense, Orpik is doing a great job keeping pucks away from Braden Holtby and dishing out some physicality against Vegas, making him valuable.

    Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Ready to go

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/4/18) As expected, Orpik (undisclosed) will be in action for Monday's Game 4 tilt against the Golden Knights, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Following Saturday's Game 3, Orpik dismissed any suggestion he was dealing with a concussion, instead telling reporters he simply got the wind knocked out of him. Despite his Game 2 heroics, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on the defenseman for offensive contributions -- he hasn't scored a regular-season goal in two years -- but can definitely count on him to dish out the hits (77 in 22 postseason contests).
