Question of the Day
“I think it’s great to have the depth,” Pothier said. “Obviously there’s gonna be some disappointed people come training camp, and that’s a juggling act that they have to do is to try to keep everybody happy. … But to have the depth at that position, it’s nice. It’s a nice luxury to have.”
Pothier keeping busy
Pothier worked with children from the Capitals Academy summer camp at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Thursday - just a break from his summer routine. He’s up to six days a week of workouts as he and strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish have balanced conditioning, weightlifting and on-ice sessions.
“It’s building that foundation back up that I lost,” Pothier said. “For whatever reason, whether injury or whatever, the last three, four summers I haven’t been able to really get after it. This summer I have. It’s a good feeling.”
Pothier and his wife, Gwen, are expecting their third child next week. The couple already has two boys, and while the timing shouldn’t be a surprise - a Caesarean section is planned for 8:30 a.m. Aug. 7 - Gwen didn’t want to know much more in advance.
“She’s hoping.” Pothier said. “She [had] nine more months to hope that it’s gonna be a girl.”
