January Caps@School Winners
Neuvirth began the visit by telling the students about himself before taking questions from the students, each of whom asked Neuvirth at least one question about his life as a professional hockey player for the Washington Capitals.
After the question-and-answer session the students enjoyed burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. Neuvirth signed autographs for the students as they ate and posed for a group photo before leaving the school.
