Joining the ranks of Henrik Zetterberg and Mike Fisher (and pretty much every other celebrity who has gotten married this summer), Dean Arsene and Keith Aucoin each got hitched this summer. Both tied the knot in July: Arsene in
(By the way, if you’re questioning Arsene’s presence in a blog about Caps/Hershey players, please excuse yourself. He will, always and forever, be a Bear to me.)
Since the NHL Awards, it has been mostly quiet on the Mike Green front. But at least we know that he got to enjoy a Blue Jays game and even got his Roberto Alomar jersey signed. Hockey players…so like us.
Alex Ovechkin…has been quite busy. This is probably surprising to no one. When he’s not vacationing and partying with his new gal and friends, he’s got his job as advisor to the president of the Unified Hockey Club Dynamo to keep him occupied. Recently, he took part in a fun competition, sponsored by Reebok, that pitted him against Pavel Datsyuk. It looks hilarious. I wish I could have seen it. You can find more pictures and an interview with Ovechkin at Alex Ovetjkin.
And, finally, members of the Hershey Bears have been enjoying their days with the Calder Cup. I know that Andrew Gordon and Bryan Helmer are still waiting for their days but Mathieu Perreault and Ashton Rome have already gotten theirs.
I hope the guys have been relaxing and enjoying their free time because camp starts in six weeks and I, for one, will be busting down the doors of Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
