I know it’s about time to start thinking (seriously) about the upcoming hockey season. I don’t know about you, but it’s been far too long in this off-season. As an easy shift into hockey season starting back up soon, today we are celebrating two key figures on the Caps’ roster. We’ve got some pretty awesome birthdays in the Capitals’ roster today and tomorrow so CAPSLove is celebrating them today!
First up is Caps’ and sometimes Hershey Bears’ goalie, Braden Holtby. Today is Holtby’s 22nd birthday. (Aww, he’s so young!) Here’s a fun fact about Holtby: When playing for Hershey he is often seen wearing the number one on his jersey, but for the Caps, he’s going with #70. Hopefully both numbers will prove to be good for him!
The next Caps’ birthday
boy man is none other than Alex Ovechkin. I’m always aware of when Ovie’s birthday comes around because it’s both six months from St. Patrick’s Day and the day before my half-birthday. I think it’s pretty awesome that Alex and I were born one day short of six months apart, though you might think that’s a silly fact. Nonetheless, here are some exceptional photos of Alex Ovechkin who will be turning 26 tomorrow!
