  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Returns to Stanley Cup champs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/24/18) Orpik put pen to paper on a one-year, $1 million contract with Washington on Tuesday.

    Orpik returns at a significant discount for the club, as his cap hit would have come in at $5.5 million before a trade to Colorado -- which proceeded to buy out the defenseman's deal. The veteran hasn't scored a regular-season goal since the 2015-16 campaign and will provide the most fantasy value in formats that take into account hits and blocks.

    Brooks Orpik: Getting bites from potential suitors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/29/18) Orpik is drawing interest from multiple teams with the July 1 signing period looming, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Orpik was traded from Washington to Colorado a week ago, but the Avs promptly bought out his contract, and now he's an unrestricted free agent. It's still possible that Orpik ends up signing a new contract with the Capitals -- but it certainly will be valued at much less than the five-year, $27.5 million rake that he received on his last deal with the Caps. Orpik remains a physical shot-blocking rearguard, having accumulated 218 hits with 168 shots redirected this past season.

    Avalanche's Brooks Orpik: Waived for buyout purposes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/23/18) 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 Philipp 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.
