“Brady was an honest, hard-working kid that we relied on a lot last year in all types of situations,” Caps assistant coach Dan Whiteford commented.
“Whether it was on the PP, PK or even strength, Brady wanted to be the best on the ice. I’m really happy for Brady; he was one of our 20s that definitely deserved to get a shot somewhere. I think he will thrive as a Ridgeback.”
