This afternoon was a whirlwind of excitement for Ice Dog players as they traveled to Arlington, VA to Kettler Iceplex to skate with Washington Capitals Captain, Alex Ovechkin. This is the third year that Ovechkin has put on a skate with the American Special Hockey Association for special hockey teams in the area.
It was quite the event. Ann Schaab, #19 for the Ice Dogs B/C team and Alex's good pal, presented Alex with the latest Official Adventures book, Drop the Puck, Let’s Play Hockey written by Jayne J. Jones Beehler. Ann is a featured character in the book.
Then it was onto the skate, where Alex practiced with each team and played in the scrimmage with Ice Dog players. At the end of the event, Alex was presented with the ASHA Inspiration Award.
