Sights & Sounds From the Washington Capitals’ 2022-23 Media Day

Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals conducted their annual Media Day sessions at MedStar Capitals Iceplex, with photos, videos, and more being created to use for promotional content, their official portraits for the 2022-23 season, as well as in-arena content during games.

While it remains to be seen whether he will play at any point this season, Nicklas Backstrom was on-hand with the rest of his teammates; the 34-year old center underwent offseason hip surgery and has already begun the lengthy recovery process, although he has stated his intention to play this season. Right wing Tom Wilson was also on hand; the former first-round pick underwent offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL.

As per usual, photographs of the players both on and off the ice were taken:

Video content used for various purposes, such as in-arena entertainment or social media, were also filmed, and as always, the fun is never far away as Garnet Hathaway found out while filming with mascot Slapshot.

The team’s service dog in training, Biscuit, was on-hand for the day’s festivities, meeting some of his new “team members” as well (meeting Dylan Strome).

The team (including TJ Oshie) also broke out a polaroid camera for the photo sessions.
