Tis the season. Wedding season.
You may recall that just two weeks ago former Washington Capitals netminder Vitek Vanecek married longtime girlfriend Kristýna “Tynka” Fejtova in Prague, Czechia. On the same day, former Capitals defenseman Christian Djoos married Ebba Ostlund in Högbo, Sweden. This weekend, it’s all about Nicklaus Backstrom and his wife-to-be, Liza Berg.
Teammates and former teammates began their travels to Sweden earlier in the week. T.J. Oshie and his wife, Lauren, arrived in Stockholm on Thursday.
Two-time Stanley Cup champion Andre Burakovsky and his girlfriend, Johanna Scortea, traveled from Malmo to Stockholm via train on Friday.
As for the happy couple, they kicked off the festivities Friday night with a private gathering.
[UPDATE] It’s getting crazy.😂
Much more to come, so stay tuned.
