Capitals News: Braden Holtby Wants To Remain In Washington For His "Whole Career"

The Washington Capitals have six key players headed for unrestricted (4) or restricted free agency (2) at the conclusion of the 2014-15 NHL season, but none more integral to the team's recent success than goaltender Braden Holtby.

Headed to unrestricted free agency at the end of his current two-year, $3.7 million contract, the 25-year-old is making no bones about how he wants his foray into the market to play out this coming summer.

“That’s not even a question,” said Holtby, via the Washington Post. “I’d like to stay here for my whole career if I could. No reason for me to leave. If they want me here. I like the city, I like the team. I’m not fussy. If I’m playing hockey, I’m enjoying it.”

Holtby has undoubtedly made the jump from a goalie with potential to a guy who can stand on his head and steal games for the Caps, and Washington appears ready to fork over a lucrative extension to the young netminder as a reward.

If so, this has all the makings of a beautiful partnership for years to come.
