Sunday Caps Practice Update & Audio: Laich “not quite ready”

The Washington Capitals took to the Kettler Capitals Iceplex ice Sunday morning for their first formal practice as training camps across the NHL opened after the players signed the “Memo of Understanding” that will lead to ratification of the CBA, thus ending the lockout.

The biggest news was on the injury front, as’s Bob MacKenzie reported Saturday night that Brooks Laich was dealing with an injury and would miss the “first week or two” for the Caps. Laich spoke about the “lower body injury” which will keep him sidelined for an undetermined amount of time.

“I’m waking up each day very hopeful,” to take part in full practices, Laich told the assembled media after he skated. “It’s disappointing not to be out there.”
