The Caps rolled out the red carpet for their home opener of the 2016-17 season. A ton of fans lined the border of the red carpet leading to the entrance of Verizon Center waiting to catch a glimpse of their favorite player. The one thing on people’s minds was “what are they going to wear?”So without further ado, your lineup for this coming season:
A few of the boys took some time to talk to Channel 7’s Julie Wright: (L-R Karl Alzner, Nate Schmidt, TJ Oshie, and John Carlson
Then we have the newbies; Lars Ellar, Brett Conolly, and Zach Sanford
Of course we could never forget our favorite Russians! Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, and the one and only Alexander Ovechkin
The Swedes; Marcus Johansson, Nicklas Backstrom, and Andre Burakovsky all looked dashing.
The dapper Canadians, Brooks Orpik, Jay Beagle, Tom Wilson, and Justin Williams (We’re convinced Tom Wilson was a male model in a former life..)
And our solo German-born goalie, Phillipp Grubauer
Stay Tuned for more photos from opening night!!
