It looks like the Greene Turtle at Capital One Arena is closing its doors

The Greene Turtle will no longer be a part of Capital One Arena as soon as April 9, the Wizards' last home regular season game.

Monumental Sports and Entertainment reached an agreement with the Greene Turtle Wednesday that will end the lease three years ahead of schedule. The agreement was reached in order to allow Monumental to, "commence construction on a proprietary business concept planned for the side of the building that includes the space in which The Greene Turtle is located," according to the press release.

While The Greene Turtle will close April 9, the Shell Raiser Lounge will re-open in its place for all Wizards and Capitals postseason games. 

The Greene Turtle has been a part of Wizards and Capitals home game experiences since its opening in 2007, but will, however, remain a sponsor for Capital One Arena.

Capitals sign heralded Virginia native Joe Snively to entry-level contract

Capitals sign heralded Virginia native Joe Snively to entry-level contract

With a thin core of forward prospects, the Capitals looked locally and announced the signing of Herndon, Virginia native Joe Snively on Monday to a two-year, entry-level contract beginning in the 2019-20 season.

Snively, 23, is an undrafted free agent who played the last four years for Yale in the NCAA. He led the team in all four seasons. He scored 15 goals and 36 points in 33 games in his senior season. His skillset reportedly caught the eye of several other NHL clubs, but he elected to sign with his hometown team.

Snively is an alum of the Washington Little Capitals, the local youth hockey program based at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. He played junior hockey in the USHL with the Sioux City Musketeers tallying 64 points in 55 games.

“Obviously a unique situation with a local kid, which is phenomenal,” Todd Reirden said. “But it's very competitive to sign those free agents out of college, and we're fortunate to be able to add someone (who's) almost like a free player.”

Snively is not eligible to play with the Caps this season, so do not expect him to suit up in red anytime soon. Washington is at its maximum number of contracts with 50, which is why Snively’s contract is set to start for the 2019-20 season. He could, however, potentially play in Hershey on a tryout agreement.
