Keeping with his tradition of playing hockey with the Ice Dogs each season, Alex Ovechkin invited Ice Dogs and other local ASHA players to play street hockey with him in front of Capital One Arena on September 22, 2017 . Alex Ovechkin also presented the 4 local ASHA teams with a check for $5000. Alex and the Washington Capitals chose the ASHA teams to receive the NHL grant marking the NHL's 100th anniversary. Following a great afternoon of street hockey and enjoying the NHL 100 anniversary traveling museum, including photo ops with the Stanley Cup, Ice Dogs and their families were treated to complimentary tickets the the Capitals preseason game that evening. The Ice Dogs are so grateful to Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals for continuing to support special hockey and providing our players and their families with memorable experiences.
