Christian Djoos Keeps Date with Lord Stanley

Christian Djoos has been on the minds of many Caps fans this summer. He played 63 games in his debut season with the Capitals and accrued 14 points (3 goals and 11 assists). The future looks bright for the return of this Swede from Nick Backstrom’s hometown of Gavle.

It only made sense the two would share a day together with the Cup when it was passed on from Andre Burakovsky. Backstrom had plenty of time on his own with the glorious trophy.

Djoos joined Backstrom on Saturday at Gavelrinken Arena to meet with hockey fans who travels brought them to the Stanley Cup. They posed, awkwardly at times, with fans and later signed some autographs.

Like Nick, Christian had his personal time with those closest to him. His father Per played for the Brynas Club and passed that tradition to his son.

Another thing you will notice are the AWESOME “DJ Oos” t-shirts all of the boys donned for the special day!

It was a proud day for this beautiful town to celebrate two of their youth hockey players.

The Cup has been packed safely away by Nicky and heads to Deutschland and goaltender Philipp Grubauer.
