Comcast Sportsnet sideline reporter Al Koken spoke with Washington Capitals assistant coach Calle Johansson during the first period. Koken wanted to know what the Caps franchise leader in games played thought of his new giant defenseman, Alex Urbom.
Apparently it was comedy hour or something.
You have a new defenseman to work with. What’s your impressions so far of Alexander Urbom?
Good. He’s A Swede. What can be wrong with him, huh? [laughs]
Does he skate as well as you did?
Oh yeah. He’s way better than me.
He’s good. He’s good. It’s his first game so we gonna be patient. He’s gotta make it a simple game and all of that. So far so good I think.
Have I mentioned I love Calle? Because, yeah, I totally do.
