While focused on the 2012 NHL Entry Draft this weekend, the Washington Capitals still remained diligent in their search for a new coach. Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com says you can add Norfolk head coach Jon Cooper to the list of candidates interviewed by Washington:
SB Nation DC's own Ted Starkey adds that Caps general manager George McPhee now says the interview portion of the coaching search is over:
