Brian Pothier and Slapshot Visit Arlington Traditional School to Host Burrito Party
Washington Capitals defenseman Brian Pothier and Slapshot visited Arlington Traditional School in Arlington, Va., on Tuesday, Feb. 23, to congratulate the winner of December’s Caps@School contest and to host a Chipotle Mexican Grill Burrito Party. The 25 fourth-grade students had the opportunity to ask Pothier questions about his hockey career and the Capitals. Later in the morning Capitals mascot, Slapshot, delivered Chipotle Mexican Grill burritos, chips and salsa and guacamole and continued the festivity.

The students won the Capitals player visit and Chipotle Mexican Grill Burrito Party because their teacher, Vicky Flynt, submitted a complete lesson plan to the Caps@School website. Flynt’s class incorporated the Caps hockey-themed, fourth-grade math lesson plan into their studies.

During the event, the class posed for group photos with Pothier and Slapshot for their school yearbook. Pothier autographed his player cards for the students, who also received Capitals red cups, window decals, pocket schedules, pencils and temporary tattoos.
