Former Capitals forward Brendan Leipsic is reportedly working on signing a deal with the KHL's CSKA Hockey Club in Moscow, Sports Express reported on Friday.
Leipsic, who had signed a one-year deal with the Capitals last offseason, had his contract terminated by the team in early May after offensive comments made on social media were made public.
Screenshots of an Instagram chat featuring Leipsic showed him making offensive comments toward current teammates Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway, as well as former teammates from his time with the Vancouver Canucks and the wife of a player. Amid criticism from around the NHL and the outside world, Washington terminated Leipsic's contract, the right -- and only -- move.
Leipsic put together three goals and eight assists in 61 games this season. The forward had spent six years in the NHL before the Capitals departed with him, while also bouncing around the WHL and AHL since 2010.
