EvgenyKuznetsovSelfie (1 of 4)

Photos by Chris Gordon.

Jay Beagle may not own a smartphone, but he’s a nice dude. After Sunday’s 1-0 shootout loss to Tampa, the Caps held the ritual Jerseys Off Our Backs ceremony. When a man was presented with Beagle’s game-worn sweater, team photographers were swarming all around. However, the guy had more important business: Taking a selfie with Jay Beagle.

Later in the ceremony, someone else got the same idea. After pulling number 92, a gentleman tried to take a selfie with Evgeny Kuznetsov. His arm, however, was too short. Not to fear. Kuznetsov, an active user of social media, took control, asking for the phone and taking the series of photos himself. It wasn’t Kuznetsov’s first time doing that either.

If you are one of these two guys, we gotta see those pictures.

I didn’t manage to snap a shot of the Beagle selfie, but how cute are Kuzya and Bearded Guy?

  • This guy needs to email us the photo ASAP.

  • Alex Nibert

    I’ll let his son know to have him send the photos with Kuzya in!

  • Yo8

    Is that Rachel in the first picture?

  • Stay tuned!

  • RESmith

    Man does that kid get it! Kuzya could have come over and been like “I was first round pick and a star in the KHL” and had the ego that goes with it. However, so far far has shown humility and acted like someone who doesn’t take it for granted.

  • Smiley456

    Agreed. With all the indecision on his part per coming over, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. I’ll be even more pleased to see him off the fourth line!

  • Oh man, really? Awesome.


  • Rob W.

    I love this kid, also saw a tweet that said Wilson shook all the winners hands. These kids get it

  • Catherine__M

    Yes! I saw her lined up for the jerseys and I was so super happy for her! Can’t wait to hear all about it.

  • RESmith

    Yes. Hopefully, they can convince Grabo to re-sign. I think they would make a great tandem on the second line.

  • Hockey mom

    In the first pic, I think the guy in the Ovi jersey is the guy who took pics with Ovi at movies way back?

  • Lapdog12

    i was thinking the same thing. let’s hope his attitude doesn’t change. he seems to put in a great effort away from the puck as well. they said during the telecast about how he approached the training staff on how he could get stronger. somebody please tell him to see Gary Roberts, look at what he’s done with Stamkos.

  • Sure is!

  • Sydney Rosen

    The bearded dude is my dad, we’ll be emailing the pictures to you guys in a few!

  • Myan

    God I love this RMNB network 🙂

  • Smiley456

    Agreed. But, seriously, why would Grabo stay on a so-so team?

  • RESmith

    Yeah, I fear you are going to be right. But he finished this year on a team that wanted him and played him consistently in the top six. Hopefully that will have some influence on him.

  • JenniferH

    Oh, Kuzya, we love you so!
