With the Caps back from the all-star break, a third of the roster went on team-building event on Wednesday. Justin Williams, Braden Holtby, Marcus Johansson, Philipp Grubauer, Brooks Laich, Brooks Orpik, John Carlson, and Nicklas Backstrom braved a torrential downpour to take a private tour of The White House.

I’d give you more details, but the Caps didn’t share any. That’s okay; we’ve got social media.

oshie-hit

If there was one player who looked to be fully refreshed after the All-Star Break, it’d be TJ Oshie. Oshie spent the weekend in Turks and Caicos, then returned to DC in time to dangle around a Panthers defenseman and nearly scored early in the first period.

Later, despite his tiny size, Oshie destroyed Aleksander Barkov while Barkov tried to make a power move to the net.

Thursday night against the Islanders, the Washington Capitals will be hosting Military Night at Verizon Center. The Caps will pay tribute to the military by wearing camouflage jerseys during warm-ups, which will be signed and auctioned off after the game. Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer will also be wearing specially designed masks. They both have a green, black, and white color scheme and have the Courage Caps logos on the side.

The All-Star Break is over for the Washington Capitals, which means Tom Wilson, Michael Latta, and Andre Burakovsky are all back in town after their dream vacation to the Bahamas. But before we transition back to hockey, I’d like to point you to this image Burakovsky posted on Instagram. It’s Andre high-fiving a dolphin.

Evgeny Kuznetsov was a stud at his first ever NHL All-Star Game. Kuzy had a blast at media day, shined in the skills competition, and scored in the game itself.

After a long, hard weekend in Nashville, Kuznetsov returned home and celebrated with a well-earned cheat meal from McDonald’s.

The Montreal Canadiens’ PK Subban just took a selfie during the Skills Competition. I see Patrice Bergeron, Kris Letang, Cory Schneider, Sophia Jurksztowicz playing with her hair, and… hey, wait a second!

We’re going to need to enhance the right-hand corner of the photo.

On Saturday, the Hockey Hall Of Fame got a whole lot gr8er as they announced on Twitter that Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has donated his 500 goal gloves to the Toronto museum. You’ll notice that the Bauer APX2 Pro gloves have Sergei Ovechkin’s name stitched on the thumb as well as two eyes. It’s a tribute to Alex’s older brother.

Due to the DC Blizzard canceling both games last weekend, the Capitals were forced to reschedule their Courage Caps night to Wednesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. Available while supplies last, the Capitals annually sell specially designed “Courage Caps” shirts and hats to benefit Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). To promote it further, players wore the hats during warm-ups.

With Alex Ovechkin sitting out due to injury, Ovi’s Russian BFF Evgeny Kuznetsov was named to his first NHL All-Star Game. And judging by Kuzy’s suit for media day, the Chelyabinsk native has brought it to Nashville.

And by it, I mean style and class. Kuznetsov wore a desaturated plaid jacket with matching suit pants to the podium. Kuznetsov does not look like a hockey player. No, no.
