Someone get this man a cigar! The Washington Capitals announced Adam Oates as their new head coach. This comes on the same day Oates is announced as one of this year’s Hockey Hall of Fame inductees. Whatta day! Here are some stats on the newest A.O. in town:

– He played for the Capitals from 1996-2002.
– He was the assisting tour de force to Brett Hull in his 86 goal season.
– As a result he is 6th overall in assists in the NHL. Man knows how to pass!
– As an assistant coach to the NJ Devils, he specialized on the power play.

Uptempo and offense-heavy…. this could be Alex Ovechkin’s dream or nightmare.

Only time will tell.

More to come….

About sunnyinnj

Female hockey fans are often referred to as "puck bunnies" and unfairly judged. As a female hockey fan with a desire to always learn more about the sport, I have an interest in any and all facets of the sport. I would like to write stories that appeal to female hockey fans who are not watching because the players are hot and look good in suits (that is a plus). My heart belongs to the Flyers but I have interest in players/teams all over the league. I know what it’s like being a new fan to the sport and having to hold your own with people who have been immersed in the game longer than I’ve been alive. Take a deep breath, it’s okay, we’ll get through this together. I don’t promise expertise, but I do hope to impart upon you my love for this “figure skating in a war zone” and create fans where there once weren’t and turn casual interest into all-out love. I am in this committed relationship with hockey and I do not foresee it ending anytime soon.
