Fort Dupont Ice Arena has a close relationship with the Washington Capitals and its fan base. Today the Caps, and captain Alex Ovechkin welcomed founder Neal Henderson and almost 50 players with the Cannons to skate after practice today.
So Ovi made a quick change after practice and reappeared as Santa O!
How cool is it to take a puck from one of the greatest shooters of all time.
Friends and families had a great time! And an honor to have Neal Henderson in the house. And many Caps players stayed around to watch too.
