Actor Paul Terry is leaving his former team, the Washington Capitals, to play for the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cups Final.
Terry was one of the best players to ever play for Washington, a team that won four Stanley Cups during his 10-year tenure with the team, which also won three championships in the 1980s.
The Capitals are in the Eastern Conference finals with the New York Rangers.
Terry said on his Facebook page that he’s moving to Boston to play with Boston Bruins defenseman Chris Kelly, who plays with the Bruins’ AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins.
Terry also said he would be available to play in Boston in the playoffs.
The NHL announced the news on Twitter.
Boston Bruins defenseman Scott Gomez said on Twitter that Terry and Kelly are joining his former Capitals teammates in the Bruins-Canadiens series.
Gomez said on Tuesday that Terry, Kelly and Gomez will play in the Cup Final in Boston.
The Caps are 4-0 in the series and lead 2-0 after the first period.
The Boston Bruins will play the New Jersey Devils in the next round.
The Devils won Game 6 of the Eastern Division series 2-1.
The Washington Capitals are the reigning Stanley Cup Champions and were eliminated in the second round in 2017.
Terry is the first Capitals to play the Stanley Series since Sergei Fedorov played in the first round of the 1996 Stanley Cup playoffs.
The Capitals announced Tuesday that they signed defenseman Paul Terry on Tuesday.
Washington announced that Terry would be playing in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
