In their “Luxury Homes” column, the Washingtonian detailed Backstrom’s recent home purchase. Looks like someone got a $200,000 price cut from his buddy:
Capitals star center Niklas Backstrom bought a house in Arlington from his former teammate Jose Theodore for $2 million. The six-bedroom, eight-bath home has a fitness room, Irish pub, wine cellar, and theater. It listed for $2.2 million.
Irish pub, wine cellar, and theater? Party at Nicky’s!
Too bad that the Washingtonian got the wrong Backstrom, as seems to frequently be the case with many media outlets, but at least they got the position right. It’s a start.
