Kugryshev Drafted By Remparts; Cap Rises
Got a couple of quick notes to pass along before heading to Bethesda for Washington Post Live:
Russian winger Dmitri Kugryshev, who was taken by the Caps in the second round of last weekend's NHL entry draft, was selected today by the Quebec Remparts (QMJHL) with the 26th overall pick in the CHL import draft. So if he plays in North America next season, he'll be playing for Patrick Roy.
I'm told that the Caps are hopeful that Kugryshev will, in fact, come over next season.
Also, the NHLPA and NHL have announced that the salary cap has gone up again. For the fourth straight season. From the PA:
The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association announced today that the Team Payroll Range established for the 2008-09 League Year, pursuant to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, provides for a Lower Limit of $40.7 million, an Adjusted Midpoint of $48.7 million and an Upper Limit of $56.7 million.
Coming out of the lockout, if you remember, the salary cap max was $39 million.
