Caps Convention in Photos

Alex Ovechkin waves to the crowd at Caps Convention during an interview with DC101's Elliot Segal

Elliot Segal glares as Alex Ovechkin high-fives an invisible child.

The second annual Caps Convention was held this past Saturday at the Washington Convention Center. Along with the entire Washington Capitals roster, a number of prominent alumni made appearances, including Olie Kolzig, Peter Bondra, Yvon Labre, and Rod Langway. Fans got to meet and greet their favorite players, get autographs, and demand “Happy Birthday” be sung to them.

The event was a tremendous success. RMNB’s own Neil Greenberg was there to document the day. Enjoy!

Matt Bradley didn’t say anything funny to make Ovechkin and Fehr laugh; they’re just astonished that someone asked him a question.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the head of hair on Karl Alzner? He looks like a Von Trapp child.

This kid could beat Fleischmann on the faceoff 67% of the time.

Karl Alzner never looked so good!

Neil took this photo just to scare Peter and Ian. Nightmares.

People look on, as a child looks at the Caps Convention's replica lockerroom area.

Fake locker room. Real locker room smell.

The jersey Ovechkin wore in the Turin Olympics. The Russians did not medal, so this is kind of a bummer.

George McPhee and Nate Ewell on stage during a presentation in the morning at the Caps Convention.

GMGM’s pantomime telephone routine delights Nate Ewell and the audience alike. “Listen, Eric Belanger, I’ve got some bad news…”

George McPhee takes a question from the crowd at the Caps Convention.

GMGM pretends to listen to a question, but he’s actually thinking about the roster for his fantasy hockey team, McPheeling Groovy.

    The picture of Semin blowing a raspberry at a friend is my friend Casey and he was signing a shirt for me. That is too funny!!!

    Must admit that the captions are hilarious. (And, of course, I can’t take any of them too seriously.)

    Photos + Captions = Awesome

    Thanks for the laughs after a very long and boring day! :)

    I hope it’s not a bad sign, but in Semin’s locker (in the fake locker room) was a blue Caps helmet w/ the number “92” affixed to the back…
