Caps Fans Donate Blood, Receive Nate Schmidt Bobbleheads

The Capitals partnered up with Inova Blood Donor Services to hold a blood drive at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va today. Each donor got to take home a Nate Schmidt bobblehead. We all love Schmidt’s smile and humor and his bobblehead was a hit among all the fans that donated blood. 

Here are some scenes from the day:

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
