While the Washington Capitals have been busy on the ice this week, with their weekend game against the Toronto Maple Leafs and their Wednesday night game against the New York Rangers, they have been busy off the ice, as well. Here is an update of this weeks “off ice” activities:
On Friday October 12, several players from the Washington Capitals were guests at the CSA Show at the Dulles Expo Center. The CSA Show took place from October 12-14 and included multiple guests from various sports, including hockey, baseball, and football.
Friday was the designated day for Capitals players to appear. Players appearing at the show were: Jakub Vrana, Andre Burakovsky, Devante-Smith Pelly, Alex Ovechkin, Lars Eller, Michal Kempny, and Tom Wilson. All seven of the players took photos with fans and signed autographs. Generally, the players would pose for photos that were taken professionally. After that, they would sign autographs for fans.

Walk for Alzheimer’s Oct 13, 2018
The Carlsons and the Oshies (or at least their wives and children) took place in the Walk for Alzheimer’s Disease that took place on Saturday October 13. It is a cause near and dear to the Oshies because T.J. Oshie’s father, Tim, was diagnosed with premature Alzheimer’s a few years ago.
