Monday night, the Capitals hosted an Alumni Rooftop Bourbon & Cigars Fundraiser at the W Hotel in DC. According to the MSE Foundation, the alumni raised over $50,000 for scholarship opportunities for local high school hockey players.
Former big name Caps players such as Olie Kolzig, Peter Bondra, Rod Langway, Mike Knuble, and Dennis Maruk told stories from their long, distinguished careers and mingled with Caps fans. There was bourbon and cigar samplings and a live auction.
But there was one surprise guest in attendance who ended up being the biggest name of them all: Wheel of Fortune host and Caps season-ticket holder Pat Sajak.
