The Brooks Laich era with the Capitals is complete after he was traded to Toronto on Sunday. We here at Caps Outsider loved Laich, and wish him the best with the Maple Leafs.

Our major involvement with Laich was following the year-long endeavor to get his plush doll made, and how excited this toddler was when we gave one to her:


Even Julianne Hough doesn’t have her own doll.

Here is more fun we came across involving Laich fandom over the years:

The 'I ain't movin' text has nothing to do with Brooks Laich's groin injury.

Honest Brooks


Plenty of ‘Laich’ puns.

Way too many.

Way too many.

Remember this?

Also, he played hockey. Well.

Farewell, Brooks Laich.
