Officially Endorsing Brett Leonhardt for Washington Capitals’ Captaincy

Former Oswego State goaltender and Washington Capitals web producer Brett Leonhardt tweeted about a half hour ago that his Vegas odds for becoming captain of the Washington Capitals now sit at 100,000-to-1.

You may remember Leonhardt as the 6'7" behemoth who sprang into action for the Capitals last season when the backup goaltender who had been called up to the roster had his flight delayed.  Leonhardt spent about 10 minutes—enough time to have his Twitter picture taken—on Washington's bench as the backup netminder before the call-up arrived.

I'm not going to bother doing any research on this, but I believe those 10 minutes as the kind-of backup goalie last season make him eligible for the C this year.  Fingers crossed.
