Since then, a bunch of money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) has been raised and the Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral. At this point, if you haven’t done it yet– you’re a big weirdo.
Over the last 24 hours, a bunch of Caps people have completed the challenge. Since I’m guessing there will be more, we’ll be updating this post as they happen all day.
After being nominated by Carolina Hurricanes goalie and fellow Russian Anton Khudobin, Evgeny Kuznetsov completed the Ice Bucket Challenge at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. His reaction is priceless. Kuzya went on to nominate Caps captain Alex Ovechkin (ooooooooo), former Capital Semyon Varlamov, and talented Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko.
After being nominated by Caps PR guy and Bojangles superfan Pace Sagester, John Carlson completed the Ice Bucket Challenge at Kettler Capitals Iceplex too. Carly then nominated Caps head athletic trainer Greg Smith, brother-from-another-mother Karl Alzner, Mathieu Perreault, Eric Fehr, and Steve Oleksy.
CSN Washington’s Craig Laughlin
Capitals color commentator Craig Laughlin completed the challenge by having six of his Network Hockey “henchmen” (as he called them), dump a 300-gallon bucket of ice water on him at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel, Maryland. That takes some courage. Locker went on to nominate doughnut-peddler Jeff Halpern, our CRL host daddy Alan May, and CSN’s Chick Hernandez.
Future Capital (I Guess) Paul “Biznasty” Bissonnette
Finally, future Capital (if we are to believe the reports) Paul Bissonnette hired what basically amounted to a production crew and rented a fucking helicopter. A fucking helicopter. He then had glacier water poured on him from said fucking helicopter. Biznasty then nominated LeBron James, Aaron Rodgers, and Russell Wilson.
