Many of our readers have asked us when certain Capitals players will have their personal “Day with the Cup”. While there has been no official list or itinerary released to the public, players have been notified of their personal dates, and news about the assigned dates and associated events is slowly being disseminated.
All dates have been confirmed via the player’s social media, or through other news reports. The list is subject to change, so please check back. (Last update: July 17th, 6:00 PM).
Key players remaining:
Braden Holtby, Tom Wilson and Brooks Orpik have yet to release information to the general public, however, looking at the known dates listed above, you can get a general sense of when their dates could likely occur.
Braden Holtby’s day with the Cup could likely occur while the Cup is in western Canada (third week in August). It is likely that Jay Beagle’s day will also occur in this time frame. That’s our best guess at this point, but stay tuned.
We will update this list as players continue to confirm their dates, and the events associated with their dates are made public.
I’m sure Abe has seen many things, but has he met Stanley? Caps video coach Tim Ohashi starts his day at the Lincoln Memorial (Washington, DC) #StanleyCup @Capitals @NHL @HockeyHallFame pic.twitter.com/gB41Ui9l3k
