Following the end of Sunday nights last regular season game, Caps players continued long-standing hockey tradition of giving their jersey to select fans. The guys always have such a good time and the fans are thrilled for the personalized sweater and photo. Here are some of our favorite moments of the night.
Kuzy had a little fun with Slapshot while he waited. And he made faces and waved at Jonas too!!
Schmidty was pretty excited to give his jersey away to a young man. But then when isn’t Nate excited???
Everyone was getting ready for the main event but Burkie seemed to be having a wardrobe issue, so Ovi and fellow Swede, Jojo came to the rescue
Karl Alzner was once again in shorts for the presentation. And he took some extra time to sign autographs for fans who stayed after the game, as did some of the other guys, including Jay Beagle.
TJ Oshie was a healthy scratch but that didn’t stop him from exuberantly hopping on the ice to present his jersey to one of the Verizon Center staff, Charles.
Other scratches, John Carlson and Justin Williams were looking pretty as they presented their jerseys.
Players continued to watch the jumbo screen while they waited for their number to come up.
One lucky lady walked away with an Alex Ovechkin jersey, a hug, and a picture!! You could see how happy she was!
Our great goalies Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer got in on the fun too. Each spent a little extra time talking with the winners.
Kuzy finally heard his name and with a big smile made his way over to a young man who we are sure what thrilled to meet the adorable Russian.
Of course the best moment of the night was with Garrett Mitchell who the Caps called up from Hershey to play in his first NHL Game. We loved it so much we devoted an entire post to Mitchy’s great night. Click here to see for more.
It was a memorable night for all the players and fans, even the ones who waited on the sideline for autographs.
