The Capitals are off to a slow start this year sitting 8th in the Metropolitan division, but GM Arsenault was quaoted saying "My main goal is to increase that position as we go. Obviously it is going to be a long process but we hope to make an imediate change in the room. My goal is to win and win sooner rather than later."

GM Arsenault made his first move as GM immediatley following his appointment to the position, by naming Logan Couture the teams first captain. Couture will be joined by Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Chris Neil who will serve as assistant captains.
