Caps Terminate Contract of Brendan Leipsic

Posted May 8, 2020

The Washington Capitals have terminated the contract of Brendan Leipsic after he made several inappropriate and misogynistic comments about the wives of ex-teammates and others.

When the comments surfaced, the Caps issued a statement through the media.

The NHL also released a statement

Leipsic offered an apology.

Leipsic, 25, had 11 points in 61 games for the Caps this season. This was his fifth different team in five seasons. However, after the Caps acquired Ilya Kovalchuk had the trade deadline, Leipsic had been a healthy scratch.

Leipsic was set to become a restricted free agent at season’s end.
