March Caps@School Winners
At the school Slapshot was greeted by an enthusiastic classroom of students as he delivered burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. Slapshot visited with the students and played word games with them on the whiteboard while they ate lunch. Each student got to take home a puck autographed by a Washington Capitals player, a Caps T-shirt and a poster.
