Hey, I’m still down here in Raleigh with the Hurricanes and Penguins, but wanted to bring you up to date on a few Caps items.

I just spoke with Caps general manager George McPhee. He has not had any confirmation of Viktor Kozlov signing with a KHL team. McPhee also had no update on contract negotiations with Sergei Fedorov.


Also learned some actual, confirmed news: The Capitals have decided to not renew assistant coach Jay Leach’s contract. Assistant Dean Evason will return to Bruce Boudreau’s staff, but this is likely an opportunity for Boudreau to add someone to his staff who he has had more experience working with. McPhee doesn’t expect a decision soon.
