After spending Thursday with H.T. Lenz and Jeremey Sinton, Friday was Capitals Assistant GM Don Fishman’s day with the Stanley Cup. (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 has already occurred right here.)
D.C. native Don Fishman is in his 13th season with the Washington Capitals and ninth as assistant general manager and director of legal affairs. In this role, he handles player contract negotiations, player contract research and analysis, the club’s day-to-day salary cap position, team salary cap strategic planning, the salary arbitration process, NHL and team salary cap analysis, and interpretation of NHL/NHLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) issues.
The Hay-Adams, Washington DC.
Fishman started his day at the beautiful Hay-Adams, which is located directly across the street from the Whitehouse.
The day started with Bloody-Marry’s from the Stanley Cup. Not a bad way to get going, and we think a first for this summer.
Sunrise Senior Center, Washington DC
Fishman visited the Sunrise Senior Center to visit with his father and present the Stanley Cup to him. Fishman told the Washington Post, “Handing the trophy to my dad, it was like the culmination of a journey that started in 1974 at Capital Centre when we sat together as fans,” Fishman said. “It’s taken a little bit too long, right? Forty-four years, but it was great to finally get there and win the Stanley Cup and hand it to him.”
DC fire and rescue also attended.
The Washington Post reports that roughly 20 members of the Class of 1987, some flying in from as far as California, joined Fishman at St. Albans for lunch, where the Cup was on display in the school’s refectory under the watchful eye of first-year headmaster Jason Robinson.
