Sami Lepisto

\ Ovechkin-Backstrom-Kozlov\ Fleischmann-Gordon-Semin\ Laing-Steckel-Bradley\ Pettinger-Brashear-Laich-Fehr\


\ UPDATE: Brashear is in a white jersey with Steckel, Bradley and Laing.\

\ UPDATE: Erksine is now on the ice as well, so there are eight defensemen out there.\

\ UPDATE: The first Sami Lepisto Era in Washington lasted about an hour. He was recalled because the team wasn’t sure about Erskine’s health, but since Erskine went through practice and pronounced himself ready to go, Lepisto won’t be going on the trip. He told me while he was packing up his stuff to drive back to Hershey that he was actually driving to do some shopping yesterday when he got the call, and it was nice to go through one NHL practice at least. This is probably not the last time he’ll be here, and Lepisto Era 2.0 will probably be a bit longer.\
