Brooks Laich Out Tonight Due To Groin

Laich

From the Washington Post, ahead of the Capitals’ game tonight in Boston:

Laich aggravated the nagging groin problem that has plagued him over the last two seasons Wednesday night in Philadelphia and, in what isn’t an encouraging sign, the veteran forward did not stay on the road with the team but is on his way back to Washington.

As the end of the season draws closer, expect to hear more chatter about a possible compliance buyout for Laich; signed through 2016-17 with a cap hit of $4.5 million, the 30-year-old’s contract has become a liability for the club.
