Seen and heard last night at Corel Centre in Ottawa:
NOW A PIRATE Center Glen Metropolit, who played in only two of the Caps' last 17 games, cleared waivers and was assigned to the Portland (Maine) Pirates. He made the parent squad after a strong training camp but was overtaken by other players.
WEEKEND IN FLORIDA Rookie Caps center Brian Sutherby, 20, will play for the Eastern Conference in the YoungStars game during the All-Star weekend Feb. 1-2 in Sunrise, Fla. In 36 games this season, Sutherby has two goals, eight points and is plus-7 defensively.
NEW WEIGHT GUY Frank Costello, who was the Caps' strength and conditioning coach for 17 seasons, had resigned to run the conditioning program for Ken Brody's Junior Tennis Championship Center in College Park. The program attracts world class athletes generally aged 10 through 17. Costello, a U.S. Olympian, NCAA track and field champion and former track and field coach at Maryland, has been replaced by Jim Fox, who held a similar position at American University.
MAKING A DEBUT Left wing Josh Green and defenseman Joel Kwiatkowski made their Cap debuts last night. With right wing Dainius Zubrus sitting out his first game on injured reserve with a concussion, the healthy scratches were Rick Berry and Alex Henry.
