Caps sign Lepisto, Neuvirth

The Capitals have signed 19 year old Czech goaltender Michal Neuvirth to an entry level deal. They also signed Finnish defenseman Sami Lepisto to a deal earlier this week.

Also, it's not really related to the Caps, but Neil Henderson has been awarded the William Thayer Tutt Award by USA Hockey for his dedication to the game. Coach Neil is a wonderful person and a fantastic ambassador for the game. Both the Deuce and I skated with teams Coach Neil ran, and I can say without question that he is one of the finer people I've met in life. His commitment and dedication to the Fort Dupont community and to hockey in general have been recognized before, but cannot be overstated.
