Friday night against the Wild, the Capitals gave away Holtbeast figurines to everyone in attendance. The action figure barely resembles Holtby, a point Holtbeast pointed out to the media, but that didn’t stop his teammates from having fun with it.

The Washington Capitals will be giving away Braden Holtby “Holtbeast” themed action figures at the Minnesota Wild (get it?) game on February 26. This afternoon, the Caps shared images of the plastic figurine.
Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby returned to Kettler yesterday to begin training for next season. Not only did the Lloydminster native bring back with him a new mask, he also brought back a fat new contract, which will keep him a Capital until the summer of 2020.
But with all those greenbacks also comes pressure, which the zen master Holtbeast says he has a special way of dealing with.
Via the Washington Capitals Instagram, here’s Braden Holtby‘s new mask.
Designed by Swedish artist-to-the-stars, Dave Gunnarsson, Holtby’s mask features a sign on its side reading, “Please do not feed the animal.”
Not sure if that refers to the eagle with the crazy eyes or the actual guy wearing the mask.
