Caps Make a Trade

The Capitals have just acquired defenseman Milan Jurcina from the Boston Bruins for a conditional fourth round draft pick.

Jurcina, 23-year-old native of Slovakia, has two goals, one assist, 20 penalty minutes and a plus-minus rating of minus-5 in 40 games with the Bruins this season. He's scheduled to meet the Caps tomorrow in Pittsburgh and should be in the lineup Saturday.

While he's clearly not the No. 1 defenseman the Capitals desperately need, he could be of some help considering the banged-up state of the defense. He's 6 foot 4, 233 pounds, and according to scouting reports, has a strong shot from the point and is a potential top four blueliner.

I'll be honest, I don't recall much about him from the Capitals' two meetings with the Bruins this season as he skated less than 9 minutes in each contest. But I'll say this: that probably means one of the injured defensemen is worse off than originally thought.

More in tomorrow's paper.
