Washington Capitals Take 2021-22 Team Photo

Photo: @Capitals

The Washington Capitals technically had the day off on Monday following their 4-3 shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday night, but the team did convene at MedStar Capitals Iceplex for their annual team photo.

Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, who was injured in Sunday night’s game, was on hand and appeared fairly mobile. The team announced Monday morning that Ovechkin is listed “day-to-day” with an upper body injury.

The entire Capitals’ roster was on hand for the annual photo opportunity. As is the case for these events, the mood was particularly light-hearted (remember the hair from Andre Burakovsky and Justin Williams?)

Also on hand for the photo op were owner Ted Leonsis and Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan, who apparently has begun his annual prayers to the hockey gods prior to the start of the postseason.

Injured Capitals players Carl Hagelin and Joe Snively were also on hand for the team photo. It’s good to see Carl Hagelin back at MedStar and smiling again.

    Hmm, granted, he is on skates, but look how big Ovi is next to Ted. And to me, Ted looks older than his 65 years. Abe lived to 85, but it did make me stop and wonder what would happen to Monumental when Ted dies.

      We wish Ted a long and prosperous life, but I would imagine his son Zach will take over at some point. He has been working for Monumental since he graduated from college.

        Good. Had not known that about his son. Deaths and divorces can be so messy to sports teams. Often takes years to recover. Thanks.
