It’s the song, or cover rather, that you didn’t know you needed. With Christmas two days away, the Washington Capitals released their 2019 holiday video. This year, Captain was a part of the annual tradition.

To summarize the next crazy yet adorable 80 seconds:

Braden Holtby on the xylophone

Jakub Vrana on the maracas

Alex Ovechkin on the accordion

Lars Eller on the recorder

John Carlson on the triangle

Tom Wilson on the drum

Carl Hagelin on the guiro

Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway on backup vocals

Captain on lead vocals

It’s inspired by Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” video featuring The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon and The Roots playing the popular tune with classroom instruments.

As Wilson said, “Nailed it!”

In 2017 and 2018, the Capitals released holidays videos about their albums, Wow That’s What I Call Music.

Merry Christmas, Caps Fans!
