The forward scored the lone goal in Washington's win over New Jersey on Thursday night.

The Red Wings' veteran told Backstrom to spend another year in Sweden before making his NHL debut.

NHL goaltenders are required to make the change to the different style of pants on Saturday.

The Capitals' captain is one of just six current players to make the cut.
