Before he became the Caps’ radio play-by-play guy, John Walton did public announcements for the Cincinnati Reds and called three Hershey Bears Calder Cup championships. He’s already had a great career, but tonight he’s be calling the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs for NBC Sports. That’s a whole ‘nother level.
If you tuned into NBCSN, you heard the dulcet tones of @WaltonCaps telling the story of the Anaheim Ducks vs the Dallas Stars.

Here’s how John opened it all up. Of course he mentioned Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau, with whom Walton has a long history.
John didn’t have to wait long to call his first goal. Anaheim’s Kyle Palmieri scored two minutes into the game.
Later, former Hershey Bear and long-time Washington Capital, Mathieu Perreault scored. Just like the old days.
Congratulations, John. You deserve it.
Play-by-play: John Walton. Pretty cool.
