Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis has always taken care of Caps fans, whether located here in the DMV or around the world. And for those that were fortunate enough to witness Alex Ovechkin’s hat trick in Minnesota last night, and ended up tossing their Caps hats on the ice, good news! Our beloved owner has got you covered:
Ted Announced via Twitter on Friday that he would replace any and all Caps hats that were tossed on the ice in tribute of Ovechkin’s second period hat trick!

Ovechkin scored at 2:14, 5:21 and 14:55 of the period to give him 509 NHL goals, two more than Beliveau for 39th place in League history. The goals scored also gave Ovechkin 34 goals this season, putting him one ahead of Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks for the NHL lead.
Another classy move by our classy owner. Thank you Ted!
