Topic - Tomas Vokoun
He is a future Hall of Famer looking for work, but will the Caps be interested in Martin Brodeur?
The Capitals can begin talking with potential free agents today. Will Tomas Vokoun get a call from Mitch Korn?
The Capitals are in the market for a backup goaltender. Should they consider bringing back Tomas Vokoun?
Mitch Korn worked with Barry Trotz for 16 years. He is now getting a shot with the Capitals and his next project will be Braden Holtby.
New Caps General Manager Brian MacLellan has a lot of decisions to make in the coming days about the roster. Is goalie one of them?
More than six months after undergoing a procedure to dissolve a blood clot in his pelvis, Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun will return to professional hockey this weekend when he plays for the team's American Hockey League affiliate.
Tuukka Rask kept Sidney Crosby and the rest of the NHL's top offense in check once again, stopping 26 shots.
Vokoun is eight wins away as Pittsburgh moves into the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Bruins. He's not riding the pine as Marc-Andre Fleury does the job; the 36-year-old is between the pipes living out the chance he never got with the Capitals.
Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma insists he still believes in Marc-Andre Fleury, that the issues for the reeling Penguins go far beyond the struggles of their Stanley Cup-winning goaltender.
Tomas Vokoun's face lit up at the mention of Marc-Andre Fleury's name. Fleury is entrenched as the Pittsburgh Penguins' starting goaltender, but Vokoun went there as his backup and in the hopes of winning a Stanley Cup.
Vokoun was handed the No. 1 goaltender job with the Washington Capitals last season, but because of injuries, the coaching change and more, the season didn't go as planned.
The Washington Capitals dealt unrestricted free agent goaltender Tomas Vokoun's rights to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday for a seventh-round pick in the draft later this month, and Vokoun soon after signed a two-year contract worth $4 million.
Braden Holtby's mask wasn't supposed to be a metaphor.
Previewing the Caps-Bruins first-round series.
It would have been hard to expect at the start of the season, or at any point in recent months, that the Washington Capitals' goaltending tandem heading into the Stanley Cup playoffs would be Braden Holtby and Dany Sabourin.
He says he is completely recovered and is committed to playing in the NHL next season.
"Thankfully we survived that first period with hard work and a little luck," Vokoun said. "It gave us momentum. After that, I think we played pretty well."
