For the seventh-consecutive year the Washington Capitals and Monumental Sports & Entertainment (MSE) Foundation teamed up with Dreams for Kids DC (DFKDC) to host an Extreme Recess Hockey Clinic at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Friday. NoVa Caps photographer Joseph Noyes was on hand for the event. 

Capitals defensemen Karl Alzner and Brooks Orpik skated and played hockey with nearly 100 children with physical and developmental disabilities following the Capitals practice on Friday. A few images from today’s event:
