Caps add Johansson as assistant
By SPORTS NETWORK
ARLINGTON, VA. - The Washington Capitals hired former defenceman Calle Johansson as an assistant coach on Wednesday.
Johansson played a team-record 983 games with the Caps and is their career leader in assists and points by a defenceman. He retired in 2003.
The 45-year-old Swede has limited coaching experience, though. He was an assistant with Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League in 2006-07 but has spent most of his time over the last 10 years as a colour commentator/analyst with a Swedish television station.
