After spending the weekend in Arizona, the Stanley Cup visited Texas on Monday for a day with Capitals’ massage therapist Cleo Bates in Dallas, Texas. (Reminder, you can find the latest schedule of dates for Capitals players “day with the Stanley Cup” right here. You can find links to each and every “day with the Stanley Cup” that have already occurred right here.)
Bates joined the Washington Capitals for his first season as the team’s massage therapist. Prior to joining the Capitals, Bates worked as the massage therapist for the Dallas Stars for nine seasons.
A graduate of the Texas Massage Institute and a state-license therapist, Bates resides in Arlington, VA during the season, and Dallas, Texas, in the off-season.
