A Bruin, then a King, now a Capital

It’s been a wild three-month period for Marco Sturm, who went from the Boston Bruins to the Kings to the Washington Capitals, who claimed him off waivers yesterday. Sturm joined his new teammates today and, presumably, will be ready to go when the Capitals host the New York Islanders on Tuesday. Sturm was gracious to his former Kings teammates, telling the Washington Post, “It was definitely a big change for me when I came to Los Angeles. What a difference from Boston, from a veteran team, coming to L.A. with mostly young guys. The guys were great. They showed a lot of respect, they were listening, but I think Washington is even a little different situation from that, too. They have plenty of young guys, but although they’re young they’ve been around for a good bit, too. I think I’ll be able to bring something leadership-wise, though.”

So, as we close the book on Sturm’s time with the Kings, here’s a couple stories on his move to Washington, from the Post and from the Capitals’ website…
