Capitals defenseman Nate Schmidt has done many amazing things in his life. He made the Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey team in college and was named an All-WCHA First-Team All-Star in 2012-13.
Schmidt fulfilled a lifelong dream in making the NHL, playing his first career game on October 12, 2013. Schmidt has scored a NHL goal and played in the postseason. With his high-profile gig, Schmidt even got a free Tempurpedic pillow just for being him.
But on May 11, the highlight of Nate Schmidt’s life happened. Jimmy Fallon made fun of him on The Tonight Show.
