Tuesday afternoon, former Capitals forward Brooks Laich shared a personal health tip to his followers on Instagram.
“I am a huge advocate of homemade organic juicing as many of you know,” Laich said. “For those of you who have inquired about what I put in my juices, here it is – kale, spinach, ginger, beets, celery, carrots, cucumbers, a lemon, tomato, apple, and a pear. I drink an 18oz juice every morning and @juleshough drinks a 12oz. The long term health benefits are incredible, but also you will have endless energy and positivity during the day! We use a @ceadovenezia juicer, would highly recommend it! Let me know what you put in your juices! ”
Laich would immediately regret asking as Alex Ovechkin would chime in with the following.
Last week, former Capitals forward Brooks Laich congratulated Nicklas Backstrom on his 500th career assist. Wednesday night, Laich had even kinder words for his former captain, Alex Ovechkin, after the Russian machine hit 1,000 points.
Saturday night at Canadian Tire Centre, Nicklas Backstrom registered his 500th career assist on TJ Oshie’s 13th goal of the season. The assist put the Caps up 1-0 against the Ottawa Senators early in the first period of the game.
One former teammate had a special message up for Nicky immediately after the milestone: Brooks Laich.
It’s 2017, you guys!
All night, Capitals players have been sharing their photos, celebrating the new year. As Washington is the only team in the NHL to play both on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, many of the players stayed in with their families.
Here’s what they posted and the translations.
Thursday afternoon, Alex Ovechkin had an adventure getting to Verizon Center. After his home had a power outage, Ovechkin could not get his electric-powered gate to open, trapping him on his own property. It got to the point where Ovechkin had to climb a ladder, jump the fence, and get driven by Evgeny Kuznetsov to make the game on time.
Thursday evening, former Capitals teammate Brooks Laich saw Ovechkin’s video and had some great advice for the Russian machine.
As you may know back on October 9th, the Toronto Maple Leafs placed former long-time Capital Brooks Laich on waivers. Laich cleared, but remained with the team until two days later when the Leafs ultimately made the decision to demote him to their AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.
The Toronto Marlies have played two regular season games since then and Laich has dressed for neither. So what gives?
During training camp, the Toronto media wrote about how former Capital Brooks Laich would be a great choice to become the Leafs’ 18th captain in franchise history.
“I was one of those kids, a Leafs fan growing up who wrote school papers on being captain,” Laich said to the Toronto Sun in September. “But I think all that will sort itself out. I haven’t had any discussion like that, I’ve not been approached.”
On Sunday in a surprise move, the Leafs put Laich and his $4.5 million cap hit on waivers. This is the last year of Laich’s six-year, $27 million contract that he received from George McPhee and signed in 2011.
Tuesday night, deaf model Nyle DiMarco was crowned the Mirror Ball champion on the 22nd season of “Dancing with the Stars.” The Queens native won over viewers and judges with his mesmerizing ability to dance without hearing the music. The 27-year-old nabbed the trophy with the guidance of pro partner Peta Murgatroyd.
But let’s be honest, most of us don’t care about that.
What we do care about is former Capital Brooks Laich was in the audience in support of his fiancee, DWTS judge Julianne Hough. Laich was shown on live TV multiple times.
A few weeks ago, former Capital Brooks Laich and his Hollywood fiancee Julianne Hough went on an African Safari. Over the last few days, the couple have been sharing their photos from their trip, which included Laich posing with a lion. He looks very excited.
“Neither of us had been there before so it was a true bucket list moment for us to explore Kruger National Park in South Africa,” Hough wrote on her website. “The environment was breathtaking and the people were incredible. One thing I’ll never forget is zip lining from Zambia to Zimbabwe; we were able to literally be in two places at once!”
Laich seemed more intrigued by the dangerous animals.
