The Oshies and Alzners Are Going to Disney World For the All-Star Game Break

With the Capitals entering the All-Star Game break on a seven-game losing streak, and Head Coach Todd Reirden, defenseman John Carlson, and goaltender Braden Holtby representing the team in San Jose, the rest of the team and NHL will be recouping some energy and relaxing over the next several days. For T.J. Oshie and his family, they will be spending the All-Star Game break at Disney World with former Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner and his family.

A photo posted to Oshie’s wife Lauren’s Instagram account shows the Oshies’ daughters Lyla and Leni with Alzner’s daughter Stella and son Anson, who all look excited at the chance to visit “the happiest place on earth”.

Alzner spent nine seasons with the Capitals before departing the team in free agency following the 2016-17, signing a five-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens. Alzner has played in just nine games this season with the Habs, before being placed on waivers and being sent down to the American Hockey League. Oshie, meanwhile, has played in 39 games this season, recording 28 points while averaging 18:48 of ice time a night.
