Midway through the first period, Braden Holtby‘s wife Brandi tweeted out something adorable. As CSN cut to her husband squirting water into his hair during a stoppage in play, the couple’s two-year-old son Benjamin– who recently learned to skate– did the same at home.

After Wednesday’s practice concluded, Braden Holtby took his son Ben out on the ice for a father/son skate. Much like Cale Chimera’s cameo Monday, it was adorable.

Talk about adorable. Here’s Papa Holtby holding hands with the baby Holtby walking around what I can only assume is Benjamin’s future office.

Braden Holtby‘s family was in attendance at the Washington Capitals’ morning skate on Thursday. During the Edmonton Oilers game that night, Braden Holtby’s son Benjamin was shown being held by his father during the first intermission. And then CSN went back to the baby well again on Saturday night, naming Braden’s family, in the Saddledome stands, as their sports fans of the game.

Here’s a first look at Braden Holtby’s son Benjamin, born in May during the Washington Capitals 2011-12 playoff run. What a cutie. And not surprisingly, he already has a great set of hair like his daddy.
