With less than 24 hours to go before the trade deadline, the Capitals announced a deal and it’s a minor one. General manager Brian MacLellan has traded Chris Brown, a player who was best known as the prospect acquired in the second Martin Erat deal, for Ryan Bourque.
Bourque, a tiny 25-year-old left wing, is the son of Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque and the younger brother of tiny future AHL Hall of Famer Chris Bourque. The brothers will play together in Hershey.
So yes, the Caps can now say they have ALL THE BOURQUES.
