Zdeno Chara has officially become a member of Washington Capitals, as confirmed by sportsnet Chris Johnston and Washington Capitals tweeting a welcome to the organization. Hockey News Ken Campbell broke the story and was later confirmed by Johnston to have a deal of $ 795,000 a year.
This is certainly a bit of a surprise, given that there was still talk of Bruins returning to the NHL this season as the best choice for the character. However, his exit from the Bruins organization is far from completely shocking as the season approaches and Bruins appears to be obsessed with not resigning veterans.
Chara has played for the last 14 seasons at the Boston Bruins and was the captain of the team. He was a free agent this year and there was speculation that he would like to see how the season would be formatted before deciding to come back. There was talk that the arrangement between Chara and Boston may not be certain.
It is possible that the character’s money was opened after Henrik Lundkvist was kicked out of next season due to his heart condition. The characters haven’t solved the need for a Capitals goalkeeper, but when Caps invited Craig Anderson to the PTO, there was probably a note that they’re going out and signing another goalkeeper. There was no wall.
Chara went to Instagram on Wednesday and confirmed that she was leaving Bruins. That was not his decision. He wrote:
My family and I have been very fortunate to be able to call Boston’s metropolis our hometown for over 14 years. Recently, the Boston Bruins informed me that they are planning to move forward with many young and talented players, and I respect their decisions. Unfortunately, my time as Bruins’ proud captain is over.
In his message to his fans, he made no mention of the capital. However, the team itself confirmed that he was on the way, so it now turns out to be a completed deal. It was reported that as many as 20 teams reached out to defensive availability and kicked the tires.
According to Pierre LeBlanc, his agent said last week: “Although more than 20 teams have contacted me, his current focus is to talk to Boston …. He still has the option of retiring, but he plays whether it’s appropriate. Seems to be very interested in
