Last night, Quintin Laing skated the last shift of the Caps' 5-2 win over Tampa Bay.
This morning, news came out that he tore his spleen and will be out for the season.
Laing, with his disregard-for-self penchant for throwing himself in front of shots, has impressed us as one of those guys who might always struggle to make an NHL roster, but who is really good to have in your system as an example of hard work and grit to other guys.
He is in the last year of his contract, so this might have been his last game as a Capital. We sure hope not. He's an inspiration.
