There’s a new pup in the Washington Capitals family! Prospect Connor McMichael and his girlfriend Lene recently adopted an eight-week-old black lab and his name is Knight.

In his first Instagram post, Knight introduced himself:

Hey guys! My name is knight and welcome to my instagram! I came home to my fur-ever home yesterday and I’m pretty pawfect (according to my mom)🤍

Knight’s getting a little pre-game nap in before watching his Dad and the Capitals take on the Florida Panthers Thursday night:

I can’t help but think Knight got his name as an ode to McMichael’s junior team in the OHL, the London Knights. Either way, he’s a cutie!

Welcome to the Capitals family, Knight!
