Guys, guys, guys – can you feel it in the air? It’s finally September, which means the start of training camp and preseason. The official start of hockey is right around the corner!
In case you missed it, the Caps’ young guns are playing the 2018 Prospect Showcase. The first game against the Predators ended in a loss, but it was a good learning experience for some of the prospects that will most likely end up in Hershey this year. The showcase runs until Sept. 11, so make sure to stay tuned to NoVa Caps for more coverage.
While I’m ready to welcome the new season, let’s officially close out the 2017-18 season by wrapping up some of my favorite photos from the season. (And be sure to check out Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed those)
Let’s do this!
Walker is always sure to give his teammates a good laugh.
Vitek makin’ saves in the shootout.
Smelling salts for the win.
Joe Whitney brings it home for the Bears.
Just Lewington dropping the mitts. Ya know, the usual.
Things will be different this year without Mitchy.
Just gotta brush yourself off and try again.
I love the fan reaction in this photo.
Tiny tendies are my favorite.
Still trying to get the perfect photo of the puck being shot at the camera. Pretty close here, but not quite.
Vitek pesting the fans with the puck. What a goof.
I think this may be my favorite of the season.
That’s a hockey smile.
Bleeding for the team.
Vitek in focus.
Tribute to the Humboldt Broncos.
Siller up to no good.
This little girl was stoked for this puck from Hobbs. It was adorable.
Whoopsie – sometimes the goal hug is too good you need to lie down.
Adam Carlson making sure Zach Sill has all of the proper equipment on for practice.
Jersey of our backs night at the GC.
Mitchy trying to give his jersey to the Bears’ fans after a WBS Penguins’ fan wins his jersey.
I’m excited for another season at the Giant Center. I’m looking forward to seeing you back in Chocolatetown Bears’ fans! 🙂
