Shocking news on Wednesday afternoon. 

The Zdeno Chara era in Boston has officially come to an end. 

After a couple of months of speculation and rumours, the captain has moved onto another team. 

The Washington Capitals announced on Wednesday that they've come to terms with the former Bruins captain on a one year deal worth $795k. 

"We are extremely pleased to have Zdeno join the Capitals organization," said Capitals GM Brian MacLellan. "We feel his experience and leadership will strengthen our blueline and our team."

Chara also posted a thank you to the city of Boston and the Bruins on Instagram. 

"The Boston Bruins have informed me that they plan to move forward with their many younger and talented players and I respect their decision," he said. "Unfortunately, my time as the proud captain of the Bruins has come to an end."
