Washington Capitals starting goaltender Braden Holtby jumped on the team’s twitter account this afternoon to answer questions from fans for about an hour. Some of the responses were funny, like how Holtby thinks Alex Ovechkin is the worst dressed player on the team. Some responses were sweet, like how he played goalie because his dad did.

Check out the full Q/A below. It’s fascinating. And while you do that, I’m going to go ice my hand because it’s cramping from all the copying and pasting I did.
