For all you single ladies of RMNB, this will be upsetting. Over the weekend, former Washington Capitals goaltender (and Hello Kitty stunt double) Michal Neuvirth got married to long-time girlfriend Monika. The two got hitched in a ceremony held in Neuvirth’s home country of the Czech Republic.
Neuvirth confirmed the news on his public Facebook page using– naturally– all hashtags.

(For the record, there was also a weird special character which included a heart or something, but I don’t know how to copy and paste that into the post.)
Strekov is the name of the castle where the happy couple said their vows. Built in the 14th century, Strekov was in the inspiration for Wagner’s classic opera Tannhäuser.
Neuvy, 26, shared a few wedding photos taken by Tomáš Nguyen (who it seems is also a sports photographer). The chronically-injured Buffalo Sabres goaltender rocked a classy, navy blue bow tie and his traditional non-smile smile.
Congratulations, Michal and Monika. We wish you many, many years of wedded bliss as a couple, and many, many five-hole goals given up by Neuvy on the ice. We’re still Capitals fans after all.
Thanks to @WashCapsRock for being forever awesome and linking us to the pics.
