Backstrom Earns Silver Medal

Posted on March 14, 2014 by Ted Leonsis

We are extremely pleased to learn that the IOC made the right decision and awarded Nick Backstrom his well-earned silver medal from the Sochi Games. Nick was instrumental in Sweden’s Olympic success, and while this experience did not unfold as he would have liked, I hope that he will be able to look back one day and appreciate what he and his teammates were able to accomplish.

A silver medal is terrific recognition. As Washington Capitals fans know, Nick is an exemplary leader and a great contributor to the success of this organization and our community. This was a very unfortunate, sad situation, and hopefully there will be changes to the current procedures to ensure it isn’t repeated.
