The Washington Capitals welcomed Brooks Laich back to the Verizon Center with a video tribute during a TV timeout Wednesday, which drew a standing ovation from the fans.

A visibly emotional Laich demonstrated his appreciation to the Capitals faithful with a raising of the stick and a clap of the mitts.

Laich, who was playing his second game for the Toronto Maple Leafs following a trade on Feb. 28, had played all but two of his 744 career games with the Capitals coming into Wednesday's contest.
