The Avalanche have acquired Brooks Orpik and Philipp Grubauer from the Capitals for the No.47 overall pick.

Orpik has one year left on his contract that carries a $5.5M cap-hit. The Capitals wanted to get rid of his contract in order to re-sign John Carlson. The Avalanche will reportedly try to move Orpik and if they can’t they plan on buying out the 37-year-old defenseman.
