Tom Brady playing for a team other than the Patriots. Zdeno Chara playing for a team other than the Bruins. Two phrases most sports fans never thought would become reality, but it’s 2020, anything is possible. That’s exactly what has happened, Bruins’ long-time captain, Zdeno Chara has signed a 1-year deal with the Washington Capitals.
Before the announced signing, Chara took to Instagram to thank the Bruins organization and the fans.
The 43-year old Chara, who was drafted by the New York Islanders in 1996, will likely play on the third defensive pairing for the Caps and provide solid depth on the blue-line. At worst, Chara will provide a veteran presence with immense experience in the Washington lockerroom.
This is a classic low-risk move.
