Capitals acquire rights to Taylor Stefishen
The Nashville Predators have traded the rights to left wing Taylor Stefishen to the Washington Capitals in exchange for a conditional seventh-round selection in the 2013 Entry Draft.

Washington will transfer its own seventh-round selection in 2013 if Stefishen appears on the Capitals' reserve list as a signed NHL contracted player for one day or more during the 2011-12 or 2012-13 League years.

Stefishen, a fifth-round pick in the 2008 Entry Draft, played this past season for Prince George of the Western Hockey League, totaling 24 goals and 67 points in 68 games. He previously played two seasons for Ohio State University.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
