In the 2006 NHL Draft, the Washington Capitals selected tiny QMJHL centerman Mathieu Perreault with the 77th overall pick, and RMNB fell in love. During his time in Washington’s organization, Perreault won two Calder Cups in Hershey and played on the President’s Trophy-winning Caps team. He was a dazzling possession player for the Caps before the team had an analytics department. And we can’t forget about the #PerryCellys and onesies.

I’ll let his dad Danny Perreault explain.
