Latest Brooks Laich Items
The Washington Capitals went into this season — like the past couple — with dreams of winning the Stanley Cup.
Brooks Laich learned a lot growing up on a corner lot in Wawota, Saskatchewan. He learned a work ethic and sense of community from parents Harold and Jane — and the value of a well-kept lawn.
Jason Chimera wasn't just the Washington Capitals' overtime hero Wednesday night as he beat the Winnipeg Jets on a perfect backdoor play. With that goal, he became the team's leading goal-scorer.
At 19 years old, Brooks Laich had to choose a path. Playing in juniors for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League, Laich's coach, Dean Chynoweth, told him to make a decision.
By the end of the night, Jason Chimera was the hero in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 overtime victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday at Verizon Center.

Jeff Halpern and Brooks Laich had a game-saving chance a — a two-on-none short-handed break in the second period. The Washington Capitals were trailing the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 at the time, but a goal in that situation could have turned the tide.
