Brian MacLellan, Capitals GM, calls Orpik trade 'above board' after NHL review

Associated Press News 2 months ago

There were murmurs of "collusion" after the Washington Capitals traded Brooks Orpik to the Colorado Avalanche as part of the Philipp Grubauer deal then re-signed Orpik when the Avs bought out his contract.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reported Friday that the NHL had concerns about the trade and wrote the teams a memo about it "a couple of weeks ago."

But Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan, speaking at the team's 2018 media day Friday, said the team cooperated with the NHL and did not receive any sort of punishment for the move.
